Nonequilibrium Superconductivity

Date & Time

The Conference is organized by the Hamburg-New York Max Planck Center on Nonequilibrium Dynamics. Our aim is to bring together a select group of experimentalists and theorists working in nonequilibrium superconductivity and related fields to assess the current state of the field and define directions for future research. We aim for an intense workshop atmosphere, with ample time for collaboration and discussion, and ample time for questions during talks. 


Organized by: Andrea Cavalleri, Eugene Demler and Andy Millis
