Quantum Physics Beyond Simple Systems (2014)

Date & Time

Vladimir Falko, Lancaster University
Charles Marcus, Neils Bohr Institute

The Simons Symposium on Quantum Physics Beyond Simple Systems was the second symposium organized on this topic, the first having been held in 2012. It offered another opportunity for researchers to discuss the fast-evolving themes of modern quantum complex systems. These themes include superconducting and semiconductors quibits; topological insulators and superconductors, Majora fermions; graphene and heterostructures of 2D atomic crystals; polaritons and quantum optics. The first three themes were the focus of the 2012 Symposium and in the intervening two years proved that they offer a fertile field for further progress.
