Some of the most pressing needs of our society could be addressed by advances in this category of materials. Clean energy needs could be met by using sunlight for splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen, more efficient energy conversion could be accomplished by using novel magnetic materials or ultra-wide band gap semiconductors for power devices and the IT revolution could enter its post-silicon phase with discoveries of new materials for manipulation of ions in addition to electrons (iontronics).

Collaborations and interactions with Physics and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments are particularly important in this area.
