Comprehensive Course on Topological Systems

October 05, 2018

Based on the high demand last semester, we again offer a comprehensive course on topological systems which is specifically targeted at PhD students and other junior researchers. Lectures will be given by several PIs of IMPRS-CPQM working in the field of topological materials, including Claudia Felser, the director of the Department for Solid-State Chemistry, and Max Planck Research Group leader Johannes Gooth.

The researchers giving the individual lectures all work at the fore-front of this exciting topic and are contribute to the world-leading activities at MPI-CPfS in their respective research area. The course will start on 19 October and will be offered based on the following schedule:

19 October General introduction to topological systems
26 October Crystal structure and Topological Materials
02 November Crystal synthesis
09 November no lecture
16 November DFT calculation for topological materials
23 November Anomalous Hall effect, Nernst effect and other transport phenomena
30 November Transport properties
07 December Thermal transport
14 December Band structure calculations - tight binding
21 December Magnetic topological materials
11 January Table-top experiments for high energy physics
18 January Applications of topological materials

Details about the individual lectures will be announced separately.
