Comprehensive Course on Topology and Materials
Over the next few weeks, Claudia Felser, group leaders from her department, and new Max Planck Research Group leader Uri Vool will offer a comprehensive course on Topology and Materials. 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 22 April 2022. Lectures take place on Fridays from 13:00 - 15:00, and will be offered based on the following schedule:

  • 22 April – General Introduction to Topological Systems (Claudia Felser)
  • 29 April – Crystal Structure and Band Structure (Claudia Felser)
  • 06 May – Crystal Synthesis (Chandra Shekhar)
  • 13 May – DFT Calculation for Topological Materials (Maia Vergniory)
  • 20 May – Nernst Effect, Seebeck, and Thermal Transport (Yu Pan)
  • 27 May – Topological Quantum Chemistry (Maia Vergniory)
  • 03 June – Electric Transport Experiments (Chandra Shekhar)
  • 10 June – Magnetic Topological Materials (Claudia Felser)
  • 17 June – Signatures of Topological Superconductivity (Uri Vool)
  • 24 June – Light and Topology (Fabian Menges)
  • 01 July – Topology and Chemistry (Maia Vergniory)
  • 08 July – Catalysis and Topology (Claudia Felser and Yufei Ma)

Details about the individual lectures will be announced later.
