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.

Quantum Materials

The term “quantum materials” refers to a rapidly evolving research frontier that aims to understand, control, and ultimately design materials in which quantum physics enables novel functionalities. Recent developments include the discovery of novel phenomena resulting from the topology of the electron wavefunction in solids, the dynamical control of many-electron states (such as superconductivity) by coherent light fields, and the synthesis of heterostructures and devices comprising atomically sharp interfaces of quantum materials exhibiting diverse electronic ground states.

Join the Graduate Center!

In order to maintain the leading role of the Max Planck Society in the field of quantum materials, we are looking for students in relevant research fields such as physics, chemistry and material sciences. Applicants should have an excellent Bachelor or Master degree in one of these fields. Students in our Graduate Center will pursue research projects that push the frontiers of the field of quantum materials and will benefit from close collaboration with world-leading experts at all participating institutions.
Applications are welcome for the autumn term 2020. Please submit your application before 31 October 2019. You can find more information about the application procedure here.
