1st Symposium on Correlated Quantum Materials & Solid State Quantum Systems


Hopes are high that quantum computers will revolutionize conventional computation and data processing. Although they can already perform certain computations faster than conventional computers, more robust solid state quantum systems are needed to solve the problem of quantum error correction and fully exploit the potential of quantum computing. A currently disjunct field are correlated quantum materials. These are designer materials with properties due to quantum effects of strongly interacting electrons. They represent a highly active but particularly complex area of fundamental solid state physics.


The SFB Correlated Quantum Materials & Solid State Quantum Systems (Q-M&S) aims to connect both areas. Concepts and methods developed in the context of quantum information and computation will contribute to a better understanding of correlated quantum materials. For example, “entanglement meters” will be devised to unravel the mystery of the strange metal state. In turn, research will be conducted into how correlated quantum materials can be used for quantum applications. Correlated quantum materials with topological properties for instance could lead to very robust and well-controllable quantum devices in novel hybrid systems.

The 1st Symposium on Correlated Quantum Materials & Solid State Quantum Systems is the kick-off event of the SFB Q-M&S, which is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the German Research Founda-tion (DFG). It features keynote and invited talks by speakers from both fields, short presentations of the 10 PIs of the SFB, and flash presentations by some of their team members. There will be ample time for dis-cussion, to engage in fruitful dialogue and build bridges between disciplines.
