"Emergent Relativistic Effects in Condensed Matter"
to be held in hybrid format (in person and virtually) in Regensburg, September 22-24, 2021.
The workshop will cover (pseudo-)relativistic phenomena and properties of topological insulators, graphene, novel 2D materials, Weyl systems and hybrids. A particular focus will be on spin-orbit coupling, on proximity effects in van der Waals heterostructures and topological phenomena in hybrids involving, e.g., superconductors. Topics to be considered comprise electronic transport, optical properties, plasmonic effects and light-matter interaction in those materials.
The workshop, funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) via the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1277, will take place in Regensburg, a UNESCO world heritage site. Founded in 179 by the roman emperor Marcus Aurelius Regensburg is a historic city in a unique state of preservation, living witness to two thousand years of rich and colourful history.
We plan for a hybrid workshop with a number of participants on-site and the others connected via video conference. For accepted participants, online attendance will be possible in any case. Since the number of people participanting in person will be limited the organizers (CRC 1277 executive board) will decide and inform about the option of on-site attendance by August 15.
