2021 Topological Matter Conference

The first edition of a new conference dedicated to topological quantum system was held between June 28 and July 1, 2021.

From June 28 to July 1, the ICN2 hosted the 2021 Topological Matter Conference (TMC), organized within the framework of the H2020 FET-PROACTIVE projects TOCHA and SKYTOP with the objective to establish collaborations and create momentum in the community working in this field.

The event, which aims at becoming an annual appointment, focused on recent developments in fundamental and applied aspects of broad classes of topological quantum systems and the synergy between them. Among the topics covered were topological insulators and Weyl semimetals, topological phononics and photonics, skyrmions, quantum metrology and more.

It counted on the participation of various ICN2 senior researchers: Prof. Sergio O. ValenzuelaPhysics and Engineering of Nanodevices Group Leader, Prof. Stephan Roche, Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group Leader, Prof. Clivia M. Sotomayor Torres, Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures Group Leader, and Dr P. David Garcia, Senior Researcher in Prof. Sotomayor Torres’ group.
