DARPA is seeking innovative ideas and disruptive technologies that provide the U.S. military significant capability improvement to dominate across all scales of conflict intensity. These span highly contested force-on-force conflicts to ambiguous, complex "Gray Zone" conflicts1. Technologies should support conflicts that may take place in a range of environments from austere, remote locations to dense megacities.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is requesting information on robust exotic and topological states stabilized in out of equilibrium systems. In recent years, there have been great advances in our understanding of how systems driven out of equilibrium may exhibit new states of matter (such as time crystals) that do not have counterparts in thermodynamic equilibrium. It has been postulated that these states could be leveraged to improve the performance of future generations of sensors and devices. Of particular interest
DARPA will present its Young Faculty Award webinar tomorrow afternoon (2PM-5PM- Tuesday August 29); the Office of Research will host a viewing of the event. Interested early career faculty may contact Ryan Champagne or register online- there is space available. DARPA’s webinars provide an introduction to the agency, describe program requirements, and provide an opportunity to ask questions to the program manager.

The Defense Sciences Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative research proposals exploring approaches to exploit topological excitations in electronics. The program aims to explore topological excitations that have recently been engineered in solid-state systems that have the potential to overcome fundamental limits faced by present electronic memory, digital logic, sensors and quantum bits (qubits) as well as other potential applications.
