Home > About DCPS > Mission and Scope


The center is established with the goal of advancing the fundamental science of materials. We create knowledge to discover, design, and control new materials.

Through research programs, facilities, and education, we cultivate a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to address the grand challenges in material science and help to develop scientific leaders.

In addition, the center will serve as a hub to bridge the fundamental material science research and real world applications and a hub to integrate innovative scientific research and novel laser and synchrotron based infrastructure development.


Become a renowned center of excellence in photon science and quantum materials.

Answer fundamental questions about the behavior of matter and open new fields.

Develop state-of-the-art facilities for designing, synthesizing, characterizing, and testing new materials.

Establish a fertile environment for the birth and development of new ideas.
