Hoffmann group part of newly renewed Illinois MRSEC

Axel Hoffmann is part of the newly renewed Illinois Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), which brings together multiple research hers from many disciplines to focus on cutting edge materials science. As part of the MRSEC, the Hoffmann research group will work on two-dimensional strainscapes, where local distributions of strains will be used to tailor the properties of novel quantum materials.
