Technologically relevant Quantum Materials: growth, experiments and theory

19-20 December 2016, AREA Science Park Trieste,

Padriciano Campus Conference Hall, building C1



Quantum materials are described as those for which useful macroscopic properties originate from intrinsically quantum effects. In many of today’s most interesting materials couplings of different degrees of freedom such as magnetic moments, electronic and crystal structure are observed, potentially leading to exploitable functionalities. Examples include nano-magnets, multiferroic and spintronics systems based on metals, oxides, and semiconductors.

The workshop will address the emergent phenomena in novel materials with high technological potential and discuss the new frontiers of quantum materials growth and the development of state of the art facilities to integrate the co-located research infrastructure for the materials characterization and for the study of the electronic structure and its dynamics.

Research goals shall be discussed as well as technologies adapted to provide efficient and high-users-turnover growth facilities capable to support an effective users program, integrating and expanding the NFFA offer.

The workshop is open to interested scientists and engineers as well as all prospective users and students.
