Electromagnetic waves in the microwave frequency range are an essential tool for the investigation of material and device properties across a broad range of applications. Examples of materials of interest include ferroelectric materials, ferromagnetic materials, superconductors, semiconductors, graphene, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and life-science materials, among others. These materials are studied at multiple scales, including bulk, thin film, and ideally down to the scale of individual molecules. Examples of devices of interest include: electron charge- and spin-based nanoelectronics, bio-inspired devices, superconducting devices, and magnetoresistive devices, among many others.
