Emerging problems in quantum materials

The IMS at LANL is convening a 2nd “quantum matter working group” to work on emerging problems in quantum materials, and simultaneously help define Los Alamos’ agenda on quantum matter for the coming year. We will focus our efforts for 2 weeks between July 27th and August 7th, 2020. We expect to build a fun and creative atmosphere for generating new ideas. LANL has rich and diverse efforts in quantum materials. Some of the topics that will be a focus include: the intersection of topology and electronic correlations, advancing computational codes for quantum materials, spin liquids, many body entanglement, and unconventional superconductivity.

Partial List of External Participants: Talks by externals coupled with short talks and discussions led by LANL scientists to identify opportunities in Quantum Materials.
