Summer School"Design and Synthesis of Quantum Materials"

Summer School
"Design and Synthesis of Quantum Materials"

of the IMPRS & MPI-UBC-UTokyo Center
Stuttgart, September 28 - October 1st, 2020


Quantum phenomena offer great opportunities for applications in information and clean energy technology, including the realization of quantum computers and novel solar cells. The rational design and synthesis of materials that host such phenomena are therefore at the forefront of solid state research. The aim of this Summer School is to bring interdisciplinary research experts in the field of quantum materials together with young researchers at the Max Plank Institute, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Tokyo.
