CIFAR Quantum Materials Program Meeting
The CIFAR Quantum Materials Program Meeting will be held November 16th - 18th at Elings Hall room 1601.
CIFAR is a global research organization. Since its founding in 1982, CIFAR has evolved and grown from a small group of Canadian academics to a leader in global research. CIFAR convenes extraordinary minds to address the most important questions facing science and humanity. CIFAR's research programs bring together international, interdisciplinary researchers who work together for five-year terms. Programs are led by a director or two co-directors and engage approximately 20-40 fellows and advisors from around the world. CIFAR research programs create an impact beyond academia through a highly collaborative strategy.
The Quantum Materials program is working towards bringing on the Quantum Age by integrating theory, materials synthesis, and experiments to explore and advance the frontiers of quantum physics. The program is structured around four main thrusts: quantum spin liquids, topological materials, the pseudogap phase of cuprate superconductors, and strange metals. To understand the working principles of such quantum matter, this team is developing new tools, new models, and new materials.
