Conference on Dynamic Quantum Matter and Materials

Main focus for this upcoming conference will be on the modeling and experimental observations of Dynamic Quantum Matter and Materials (DQMM). Overall, the goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers to discuss and highlight emerging topics and develop ideas for future research.

Dates: 14-16th December 2020 Location Online over Zoom. Details upon registration. Registration Registration is available here.

What it is about

Quantum matter and materials, like topological states, 2D materials, and Dirac and Weyl materials has grown to be an active area of modern condensed matter. Fascinating properties of quantum materials might lead to technological applications such as spintronics, quantum technologies and quantum sensors. Combination of new materials discoveries and development of new probes of quantum matter has helped shape these topics into an exciting area. Recent dynamic and pumped probe experiments reveal a strong promise of Dynamic Quantum Matter as a new research direction. We strive to measure, understand and predict transient correlations and coherences in quantum materials upon different driving conditions. Therefore, we introduce it as a new topic of this year’s quantum matter conference. We seek to have an active discussion on hidden, entangled and dynamic orders that emerge in quantum materials and matter.

Organization

While the conference will be streaming from the University of North Florida, due to the COVID outbreak, we are planning on holding the conference online using Zoom sessions. Meeting links will be given to those that register. Sessions will consist of four 15 minute talks (12 + 3 format) on the topic of discussion. After those 4 talks, there will be an hour of open discussion. Virtual poster sessions and open forums will be held during the break period between sessions. Anyone can submit a poster for consideration.
