MURI Grant on Topological Matter

We have been awarded a Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) grant from the Army. The grant funds a team of scientists from UC-Santa Barbara, Columbia, UC-Berkely, University of Pittsburgh, Caltech, as well as our group at Rice to perform research on topological matter. The tile of our project is: “Abelian bridge to nonabelian anyons in ultra-cold atoms and graphene”.
