Observation of and insight into elementary excitations are central to every field of quantum material research, including unconventional magnetism, superconductivity, and other strongly correlated, topologically protected, and low-dimensional systems.

This Winter School is addressed to graduate students and young scientists, as part of the quantum material research collaboration among the Max-Planck Society, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Tokyo.
Lectures will cover a wide variety of recent experimental and theoretical studies of quantum materials, and run for four days from Thursday to Sunday.
Students and young scientists will have an opportunity to present short talks and posters.

The organizers:
  • Atsushi Fujimori (UTokyo, Japan)
  • Kentaro Kitagawa (UTokyo, Japan)
  • Andrea Damascelli (UBC, Canada)
  • Dirk Manske (MPI-fkf, Germany)
  • The MERIT program at the University of Tokyo
