International Centre for Theoretical Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (ICTS-TIFR), Bengaluru host vibrant in-house postdoctoral program. Founded in 2007, ICTS is a new initiative in Indian science.
ICTS is conducting a Workshop on Novel Phases of Quantum Matter from December 23 to January 2, 2019. During the program, Prof. Ashvin Vishwanath, Harvard University will deliver the Infosys-ICTS Chandrashekar lecture series focusing on current developments in the study of novel phases of quantum matter.
In this light, it is pertinent to bring together theorists and experimentalists working in these areas and provide a vibrant platform to discuss results, ideas, initiate collaborations and help shape future research directions for the community and this discussion meeting aims to do that.
- Recent theoretical and experimental developments in the physics of quantum matter have necessitated an expanded framework to understand “quantum ordering”.
- On the theoretical front, rapid development in the last decade or so has unveiled non-trivial patterns of quantum entanglement, fractionalization of statistics as well as symmetry charges that have been found to produce novel and exotic phases of matter.
- Work on classifying such phases and understanding their unique properties is an ongoing collaborative effort involving high-energy, condensed matter, and quantum information physicists as well as mathematicians.
The topics of focus are:
- Topological order in condensed matter systems
- Symmetry protected and enriched topological phases of condensed matter
- 3. Superconductivity and other correlated phases in twisted bilayer graphene.
- The program would consist of invited talks with ample time for discussions.
