Quantum Materials Trends

Preserving quantum coherence in nanostructured solids
(Brescia, 25-26 September 2017)

Quantum materials trends bring together experts in quantum materials, ultrafast optical spectroscopies and quantum coherence. The workshop will be focused on various aspects involving the preservation of quantum coherence in solid state materials, and will include a variety of materials, experimental techniques and theoretical methods.

The topics covered will include the new trends in material growth and engineering, fundamental theory, state-of-the-art spectroscopies, ultrafast dynamics.
