Worshop “Materials and Topological Phases”: Lyon, October 3-4,  2016

Co-organized by the GDR Mesoscopic and Quantum Physics and the GDR MEETICC

This workshop aims to gather the communities of physicists and chemists interested in topological phases. This theme has emerged worldwide during the last decade as a major topic for both communities. On the one hand, the discovery of new compounds displaying topological properties, as well as the synthesis of compounds showing such properties, are important in condensed matter physics. On the other hand, the characterization of their various properties is at the origin of the current interest of the mesocopic quantum physics community. This meeting will also include introduction presentations aiming to highlight the interest of topological phases for the “materials” community. The objective of this meeting is therefore to highlight to generate a dynamics by fostering exchanges between the different communitites interested by topological phases.
