Quantum materials exhibit remarkable properties that have the potential to revolutionize electronic technologies. These include high-temperature superconductivity, topologically-protected excitations and spin-liquid states.
This Summer School, sponsored by the Institut quantique at the Université de Sherbrooke, is aimed at providing fundamental training to graduate students and postdoctoral scientists on some of the major topics at the forefront of current research into quantum materials.
The school will run for five days, from Monday through Friday; departure on Saturday after breakfast. Pedagogical lectures will be given in the morning and early afternoon, by six experts in quantum materials research. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the afternoon will end with a poster session, where the junior scientists can present their own research project, giving them a unique opportunity to interact with the lecturers and with their fellow peers from around the world..
