Comprehensive Course on Topology and Materials
Over the next several weeks, several researchers from the institute, whose activities focus on effects caused by topology, 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 19 April 2024. Lectures take place on Fridays from 13:00 - 14:30, and will be offered based on the following schedule:

  • 19 April – General Introduction to Topological Systems (Fabian Menges)
  • 26 April – Topological Quantum Chemistry (Maia Vergniory)
  • 03 May – Topological Transport Experiments (Chandra Shekhar)
  • 10 May – no lecture – “Brückentag” after public holiday
  • 17 May – Nanofabrication of MISFIT Compounds (Sushmita Chandra)
  • 24 May – Topological Transport Theory (Yang Zhang)
  • 31 May – Topological Catalysis (Xia Wang)
  • 07 June – Superconductivity and Extreme Conditions (Walter Schnelle)
  • 14 June – Topological Superconductivity (Uri Vool)
  • 21 June – Paired Electrons and Topology (Jianfeng Ge)
  • 28 June – Magnetic Topological Materials and Thin Films (Edouard Lesne)
  • 05 July – Topology and Thermoelectricity (Bin He)
  • 12 July – Topology and Light-Matter Interactions (Fabian Menges)

Details about the individual lectures will be announced here.
