Workshop on Topological Phenomena in Quantum Matter

Topology Workshop

Experimental and theoretical physicists met November 21-22 2016 at the Department of Physics to discuss recent progress in the understanding of topological and spin-orbit coupled strongly correlated materials.

This workshop brings together experimentalists and theorists working on topological phases of matter and strongly spin-orbit coupled systems. Recent developments in this field include the experimental realization of topological semimetals, novel materials that may harbor topological superconductivity as well advances in the preparation of spin-orbit coupled two-dimensional electron gases. In particular it will cover the subjects
(1) Topological metals and insulators
(2) Theory of interacting topological states of matter
(3) Spin-orbit interaction and correlated electron systems
(4) Unconventional superconductivity
