Understanding and exploiting the robustness of topological superconductivity and the unique quantum mechanical properties of strongly entangled particles is a thriving avenue to develop new quantum technologies. The first ideas and platforms, notably Majorana zero modes at the edges of one-dimensional topological superconductors, have led to a richer landscape of systems that include unconventional superconductors, spin-liquids, fractional quantum Hall states, as well as the simulation of many-body ground states in quantum computers. A hands-on session on quantum matter and AI with emphasis on quantum computing will also be delivered. This new edition is devoted to pedagogically present the main recent developments in the field in order to prepare future generations to uncover the true potential of these developments.
Topological Matter School 2022 during one week (August 22-26) will provide extended lectures on these exciting topics by leading experts in both experiment and theory. Our program will be spread in 1 week with 6 lectures per day. Outdoors activities to get to know the city and the Basque culture will also be organized, such a surf class in our precious Zurriola beach and a visit to a traditional cider house.
This is the list of lecturers for the 2022 edition:
- Roser Valentí (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main, Germany)
- Pedram Roushan (Google Inc, Santa Barbara, USA)
- Charles Marcus (Niels Bohr Institute, Denmark)
- Vidya Madhavan (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA)
- Eliska Greplova (TU-Deflt, Netherlands)
- Lucile Savary (CNRS, France)
- Adam Smith (University of Nottingham, UK)
- Jason Alicea (Caltech, USA)
