The symposium will be held in the framework of the XXXIX RSEF Physics Biennial will be held in Donostia/San Sebastián from July 15 to 19, 2024.

Many devices used for quantum technologies today benefit from the macroscopic phase coherence of the superconducting state. However, their robustness to interference can be considerably improved by taking advantage of topological protection. The recent advances in band structure calculations show that there is an exploding number of materials that present topologically nontrivial states and/or exotic superconductivity. Additionally, numerous methods for the manipulation of these quantum states have been developed including microwave spectroscopy combined with transport measurements. Finally, in an effort to augment the possibilities of such quantum materials, exploring the interaction of magnetism and superconductivity has been proven necessary for the rapid advance of quantum technologies. The symposium invites contributions in fields such as: Non-trivial band structures of 2D materials and magnetic systems, 2D materials, Superconductivity, Manipulation of quantum states with microwaves, Molecular magnets, Hybrid structures, and proximity-induced quantum phenomena.
