Hot Topics: Konstanin Novoselov -"Heterostructures based on 2D crystals"



 Hot Topics in Quantum Nanoscience

Course Content: Speakers from all over the world will be asked to present pedagogical introductions to their field with an emphasis on basic concepts. Besides such an introductory lecture open for everybody, the participants of this course will have an additional discussion with the speaker discussing a recent paper and the holy grails of the field.

Exemplary topics are topological insulators, mesoscopic quantum gravity, string theory for condensed matter, measurement-based quantum computing, quantum-limited sensors, Majorana Fermions, fast-light with single photons, etc., etc.

Audience: The tutorial, as a ~1 hour lecture, is open to everybody. A 2nd hour will be reserved as a discussion hour between the registered class of PhD students and postdocs with the lecturer.    

Course teachers: Gary Steele, Leo DiCarlo and Leo Kouwenhoven and Tjerk Oosterkamp

Preparation: For PhD student who have registered for the hot topics course it is necessary to prepare by reading documents/links mentioned below.
