Idea

In solid state physics, by a quantum material one means – broadly and somewhat vaguely – a phase of matter whose properties are deeply controlled by quantum physics and often by topology. Prime examples are superconductors and, more recently and more prominently, topological phases of matter controlled by topological order, such as topological insulators; also quasicrystals. A concrete example is graphene.
