Comprehensive Course on Topological Systems
The course on topological systems is offered by several researchers at MPI CPfS who all are involved in our world-leading research activities in this field.

The series of lectures is particularly targeted at PhD students and other junior researchers. As several scientists will give lectures on their respective research area, the course will offer a broad introduction into the field of topological materials and at the same time provide a great overview over the research activities at our institute in this field.

Schedule of the course:

19 October - General introduction to topological systems (Johannes Gooth)

26 October - Crystal structure and Topological MateriaIs (Claudia Felser)

02 November - Crystal synthesis (Chandra Shekhar)

09 November - no lecture

16 November - DFT calculation for topological materials (Yan Sun)

23 November - Anomalous Hall effect, Nernst effect and other transport phenomena (Yan Sun)

30 November - Transport properties (Chandra Shekhar)

07 December - Thermal transport (Johannes Gooth)

14 December - Band structure calculations - tight binding (Claudia Felser)

21 December - Magnetic topological materials (Claudia Felser, Kaustuv Manna)

11 January - Table-top experiments for high energy physics (Johannes Gooth)

18 January - Applications of topological materials
