The Quantum Matters in Materials Science workshop will be held on May 4-5, 2020 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in Gaithersburg, Maryland. There is no registration fee for this event, but all attendees must be pre-registered to gain entry to the NIST campus. Detailed webpage: https://www.ctcms.nist.gov/~knc6/qmms/QMMS2020.html

The scope of the workshop is briefly stated below: 

All materials are inherently quantum in nature but when the quantum phenomenon starts showing at the classical scale, experimentally we can leverage that for industrial applications such as superconductivity, topological insulators etc.  Some of the important classes of materials used in QIS are based on a) ion-traps, b) defects, c) quantum-dot, d) Josephson-junction superconductors, and e) topological materials based. As Materials Genome Initiative has been already been successful in expediting the discovery and characterization of energy and structural materials, its compelling to apply the same approach to quantum materials, as they have immense potential for quantum information processing (QIS) applications.To do so, it is essential to have good synergy between the experimental and the computational approaches

This workshop aims at accelerating this effort. To make the workshop as effective as possible we plan to mainly focus on inorganic superconductor and topological materials but are not limited by it.

 Some of the key topics to be addressed by both theory and experiments are: 

1) discovery and characterization of new superconductors/topological materials, 

2) optimization of known quantum materials, 

3) investigation of defect induced behavior and transitions, 

4) quantum memory applications,

5) challenges in applying QIS technologies at industrial scale.

Some of the invited speakers include:

  1. John Martinis, Google and UC Santa Barbara
  2. Arun Bansil, Northeastern University
  3. M. Zahid Hasan, Princeton University
  4. Joel Moore, UC Berkeley
  5. David Vanderbilt, Rutgers University
  6. Johnpierre Paglione, University of Maryland
  7. Tyrel McQueen, Johns Hopkins University
  8. Ichiro Takeuchi, University of Maryland
  9. James M Rondinelli, Northwestern University
  10. Rudolph Magyar, Northrop Grumman Corporation

Organizers: Kamal Choudhary, Francesca Tavazza, Carelyn Campbell, Albert Davydov.
