Workshop

Heavy Fermion Materials and Quantum Phase Transitions


The workshop will address frontier topics on the Kondo effect and quantum phase transitions in heavy fermion materials and related systems, a broad area which lies at the intersection of some of the most important phenomena in quantum condensed matter physics. The workshop will gather a small group of top experts to discuss the status of the field, and to assess the opportunities for new physics.

December 9-11, 2013

Topics:

• Heavy Fermion Materials

• Quantum Phase Transitions

• Unconventional Superconductivity

• Spin-Orbit Coupling and Topological States

• Connection to d-electron Systems

• Non-equilibrium Physics and Cold Atoms
