Workshop Details
Quantum Materials for Emergent Applications in Quantum Science
06/15/2024 - 06/19/2024
Meeting Description:

Harnessing quantum phenomena found in complex materials systems is critical to realizing new applications within the field of quantum information science (QIS). This includes solid-state systems that host non-abelian anyons, Majorana zero modes, and other exotic states that are sensitive to and can enable control of quantum states. The central need is for multifunctional materials that are well-controlled with well-understood properties. However, such systems often exhibit intricate crystalline structures with complex chemical arrangements, presenting challenges both in synthesis and understanding the phenomena. As such, this workshop aims to focus on synergizing expertise on thin-film and bulk synthesis, characterization, and theory with the goal of bridging basic science and emergent applications within QIS. Addressing current challenges through collaborative brainstorming sessions will play a pivotal role in solving present obstacles and propelling advancements in quantum materials towards new frontiers of discovery.


IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Saturday through Wednesday. Festival lodging rates will go into effect on the night of Wednesday the 19th. To avoid the rate increase, you should depart on the 19th. If your flight out of Montrose does not leave until Thursday the 20th, we suggest eating dinner in Telluride on the night of the 19th, taking the shuttle to Montrose after dinner, and staying at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
