GEFES will organize a 2-day symposium on «Quantum Materials and Technologies» at the RSEF biennial meeting that will take place in Santiago de Compostela on 17-21 July, 2017.

This symposium seeks to put together the rising concept of quantum materials, which comprises emergent phenomena in condensed matter physics, and quantum technologies, which aim to manipulate the quantum world for the development of conceptually new devices. Both topics are strongly related, for the comprehension of the ultimate consequences of quantum interactions is a necessary condition for the realization of what has already been coined as the Second Quantum Revolution.

The scope is hence broad and includes the following topics:

-Correlated electron materials
-Topological materials (topological insulators and superconductors, Dirac materials, Weyl semimetals..)
-Solid state quantum technologies (quantum sensing, information, and computation)
-Quantum Spintronics
-Quantum Plasmonics
