Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute


The Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is a new venture into research of systems and phenomena explicitly involving Quantum Mechanics. Our researchers are devoted to the study of Quantum Materials, whose physical properties embody the central unresolved questions challenging the field of modern condensed matter physics.



Studying at SBQMI


We aim to foster and provide a rich learning experience by giving students not only a strong foundation of knowledge with a broad technical base, but also a well-rounded perspective of how their research can impact society.


SBQMI has strategically assembled a strong, multidisciplinary cluster of research scientists in Quantum Structures, Quantum Materials, and applications towards Quantum Devices. Our open, collaborative environment, extensive international network, and diverse set of industry partners allow students to develop both breadth and depth in their chosen area(s) of research.
