Topological Matter School 2022 (TMS22)

22.Aug - 26. Aug, 2022 Cod. Z19-22

Description

Understanding and exploiting the robustness of topological superconductivity and the unique quantum mechanical properties of strongly entangled particles is a thriving avenue to develop new quantum technologies. The first ideas and platforms, notably Majorana zero modes at the edges of one-dimensional topological superconductors, have led to a richer landscape of systems that include unconventional superconductors, spin-liquids, fractional quantum Hall states, as well as the simulation of many-body ground states in quantum computers. A hands-on session on quantum matter and AI with emphasis on quantum computing will also be delivered. This new edition is devoted to pedagogically present the main recent developments in the field in order to prepare future generations to uncover the true potential of these developments.The main goal is to cover basic and advanced aspects of the field, including the so interesting topological superconductivity and its application to quantum information. In this sense, we will cover:

  • Topological band theory
  • Unconventional superconductivity
  • Theory of spin liquids and strong entanglement
  • Experimental techniques such as, transport measurements and neutron scattering
  • Majorana bound states and beyond
  • Superconducting topological materials

After school there will be a hands-on session on quantum matter and AI with emphasis on quantum computing
