Workshop on Frontiers of Quantum Materials

Workshop on Frontiers of Quantum Materials

Stuttgart, July 1st - 3rd, 2019 - Werner Köster Lecture Hall, 2R4


In quantum materials, the collective behavior of strongly interacting electrons generates a wide range of spectacular physical properties including high-temperature superconductivity and the quantum Hall effect.
Understanding this behavior is the key for the creation of a new  generation of materials and devices. This workshop will bring together scientists working at the frontier of research on quantum materials at Peking University, in the Topological Materials Science project in Japan, at several Max Planck Institutes, and at the University of Stuttgart.


  • Topological Materials
  • Spin and Charge Order
  • Low dimensional systems
  • New developments in solid-state theory
  • Spectroscopy
