Quantum Design's gift will foster transformative education and discoveries by enabling Columbia faculty and students to use a modern tool to better understand, explore, and improve the characteristics and qualities of materials used in information processing and sensing. "We are extremely grateful for Quantum Design's generosity and their contribution to science education," Peter de Menocal, Dean of Science of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, said. "Gifts such as this play an important role in preparing Columbia graduates to become leaders in their field and make discoveries that benefit society." The gift helps magnify Columbia’s strength in physics education and foster new learning opportunities for students. All physics majors will gain valuable hands-on experience with the new instrument, from senior students to those new to the discipline.
