Special solid-state Seminar: focus on Quantum Materials

This seminar series explores modern topics and new paradigms in solid-state physics by focusing on a selection of emerging and novel materials families. The event addresses students (Bachelor, Master) and young researchers (PhD, postdocs). It aims to give an modern perspective into the cutting-edge research, novel properties, and potential applications of materials that are defining the future of science and technology. The speakers of this series involve the new generation of leaders in the field, providing insights and perspectives on new challenges and opportunities in the field.
