Comprehensive Course on Materials and Topology
Over the next few weeks, Claudia Felser and group leaders from her department will offer a comprehensive course on Materials and Topology. The course is mostly targeted at PhD students and postdocs, but everyone interested in topological phenomena is welcome to attend the lectures.All lectures are digitally recorded and made available online to participants as a video stream throughout the whole semester.

Several scientists will give lectures on their respective research area, so that 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. The researchers giving the individual lectures all work at the forefront 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 24 April 2020 and will be offered based on the following schedule:

  • 24 April General introduction to topological systems (Claudia Felser)
  • 01 May no lecture (public holiday)
  • 08 May Crystal structure and band structure (Claudia Felser)
  • 15 May Crystal synthesis (Chandra Shekhar)
  • 22 May Calculation of topological invariants - part I (Yan Sun)
  • 29 May Calculation of topological invariants - part II (Yan Sun)
  • 05 June Linear response in topological materials (Yan Sun)
  • 12 June Electric Transport I Experiments (Chandra Shekhar)
  • 19 June Electron Transport II (Johannes Gooth)
  • 26 June Table-top experiments for high-energy physics (Johannes Gooth)
  • 03 July Magnetic topological materials (Jacob Gayles/Kaustuv Manna/Claudia Felser)
  • 10 July Nernst Effect, Seebeck and thermal transport (Satya Narayan Guin/Chenguang Fu)
  • 17 July Catalysis and topology (Nitesh Kumar/Guowei Li/Claudia Felser)

Details about the individual lectures will be announced here.
