We are delighted to announce the SPICE-Workshop on “Topological Superconductivity in Quantum Materials » which will be held from 19th-22nd of October, 2020 on-line.


Recent years have seen a massive resurgence in the interest of topological. In many cases, topological quantum mechanics is achieved in systems involving superconductors with highlights including: Majorana Fermions in nanowire devices; unconventional electron pairing in layered oxides and the decoding high temperature superconductivity; superconducting thin films of strontium ruthenate; topological superconductivity in UTe2; coupling superconductivity into chiral (topological) molecules; and topological superconductivity and magnetism in twisted bilayer graphene.


The timely workshop brings together world-leading scientists from a broad range of disciplines working on overlapping themes involving correlated electrons and superconductivity in topological systems. These communities will have an opportunity to appreciate how these areas are interlinked thereby stimulating further understanding and new collaborations..


If you would like to attend the workshop, the application deadline is October 9th, 2020 (https://www.spice.uni-mainz.de/topological-superconductivity-2020-home/). The workshop is free of charge to attend, but registration is mandatory in order to get the correct Zoom log-in information and further information.


We kindly ask you to share this information with colleagues and students that may be interested in participating. Any questions regarding the workshop can be directed to spice@uni-mainz.de.
