Center for Quantum Nanoscience Groundbreaking Ceremony at Ewha Womans University
The Center for Quantum Nanoscience at the Institute for Basic Science (Director Andreas Heinrich) will have a revolutionary new research space. The Research Collaboration Building (tentatively named) to be constructed by February 2019 at Ewha Womans University will be the new home of the Center.
The facility will be built to resist even the tiniest vibrations to enable delicate nanoscience research with a focus on green energy and creativity-inspiring spaces for scientists from all over the world to connect, learn and research. Ewha Womans University and the Center for Quantum Nanoscience hosted the groundbreaking ceremony to mark the occasion.
Construction of the Research Collaboration Building located across from the University-Industry Cooperation Building will be completed in February 2019. The new four-story building will have two underground floors and boast the ground area of 2,754㎡ as well as the total floor area of 12,405㎡ on a 7,274㎡ site. The Center for Quantum Nanoscience and the ELTEC College of Engineering will share the building with the IBS Center on the left and ELTEC on the right. A bridge-type common area will connect the two. Once the building is constructed, outstanding researchers in the fields of solid state physics and optical science will enjoy the environment in which they can completely focus on creative scientific exploration.
“After moving in in February next year, the Center for Quantum Nanoscience will have access to optimized research facilities and deepen its cooperation with top domestic and international research groups, including the ELTEC College of Engineering,” President KIM Doochul of IBS said in his congratulatory remarks. He also added, “I will continue to give my support for the IBS Center, an explorer of the world’s tiniest microscopic world, and Ewha Womans University to join hands and achieve dreams bigger than anyone’s anticipation.” President KIM Hei-sook of Ewha Womans University said, “The Research Collaboration Building will help Ewha to focus on promoting in-depth study to lead global quantum nanoscience research and nurturing female engineering leaders who conduct creative and interdisciplinary research to shape new future industries.”
The Center for Quantum Nanoscience is well on its way to becoming one of the premiere, world-class research centers developing the understanding and engineering of quantum systems that may lead to revolutionary advances in computing among many other possibilities. Director Heinrich is a world-renowned scientist in the field of scanning tunneling microscopy and quantum nanoscience. The Center is in the process of constructing breakthrough equipment optimized for its research and building a collaborative research environment in the Research Collaboration Building while attracting talented researchers domestically and internationally. In addition, the Center strives to become a global research hub of quantum nanoscience through exchanges of culture, system, and knowledge with scientists across the world.
