Topological Quantum Matter in Magnetic and Synthetic Platforms

International Workshop
8 - 12 July 2024

Topological quantum matter plays a central role in both modern condensed matter and quantum statistical physics and has many exciting applications including, potentially, quantum computation. This workshop will bring together researchers working on various fronts of topological quantum matter, both experimentally and theoretically, and to stimulate interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations.

Topics include

  • Topological states of matter
  • Long-range quantum entanglement
  • Experimental design and probe of topological states
  • Frustrated magnetism
  • Fractionalized excitations
  • Gauge theories in many-body systems
  • Synthetic many-body platforms
  • Rydberg atom systems
  • Quantum phases of matter
  • Quantum dynamics
