Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks This seminar provides a overview on a fascinating new class of solid-state materials and a fast growing research area: topological quantum materials. The conceptual application of topology to the classification of solid-state materials revolutionized condensed matter physics in recent years and lead to the discovery of novel topological quantum materials and phases. For example, topologically non-trivial band structures give rise to material properties that are insensitive against external perturbations, which renders topological and quantum materials a promising and robust platform for novel electronic, spin-electronic and quantum optical applications.Possible topics for presentation include, for example, two-dimensional materials and their van der Waals heterostructures, Moire materials, Floquet time crystals, as well as materials and devices for quantum computation with Majorana fermions.
