Quantum Materials for Quantum Technologies (QMQT)
Luogo: Laboratori Nazionali Frascati INFN
Data: February 14-15,2022
In recent years, the notion of “Quantum Materials” has emerged as a powerful unifying concept across diverse fields of science and engineering, from condensed-matter to materials science and quantum technologies.
Beyond traditional quantum materials such as superconductors, and magnetic systems, the field has significantly expanded to encompass topological quantum matter, graphene and two-dimensional materials and their van der Waals heterostructures, strongly correlated oxides, perovskites, nanomaterials including diamond, as well as materials and devices for quantum computation with Majorana fermions and Dirac topologically protected states. Quantum Materials are also of basic importance for particle physics being at the basis of detectors for photons, protons electrons and dark-matter, single photon emitters, and for new particle acceleration techniques.
In this workshop, which include Italian researchers and internationally recognized experts, we will discuss the physical properties of many Quantum Materials and their applications in particle physics and more in general for quantum technologies.
