The materials by design workshop brought together a select group of scientists to discuss new results, open issues and future directions for designed materials with novel equilibrium and non-equilibrium electronic properties. Systems discussed in the conference included oxide heterostructures, van der Waals compounds, and surface/interface states and systems with strong light-matter coupling. The conference format, which featured talks in the mornings with afternoons reserved for discussion and interaction, was very successful in promoting new ideas and collaborations.
CCQ is deeply appreciative of the hospitality of NYU’s physics department, who accommodated the conference after it was displaced from the Flatiron building by the steam-pipe explosion.
