Symposium QT05-Quantum Phenomena, Measurements and Engineering in Materials

Solid-state materials set the ideal platform for future devices with quantum applications, such as quantum computing, quantum simulations, quantum communications, and quantum sensing. This rapidly evolving field calls for profound understanding of quantum phenomena in materials and quantitative measurements of entanglement in real time and in operando. Together with these understanding and measurements comes the engineering and design of quantum materials. This includes the design of new material structures exhibiting novel quantum phenomenon and the control of existing quantum materials for application purpose. All these quantum material applications have been driven by the synergy of experiments and theory in recent decade. Given these rapidly evolving applications, we feel obliged to organize a symposium to address the three aspects of quantum materials and how these research studies can lead to new revolutions in industry. We envision this first part of this symposium to highlight the most recent progress in novel quantum phenomenon in materials with, such as topological superconductivity, quantum spin liquidity, many-body localization, and Wigner crystallization. This symposium should also cover as it second objective the experimental techniques for quantum materials characterization and theoretical proposals about for novel quantum measurements, such as coherent spectroscopy, color-center measurements, and quantum noise. Finally, we emphasize the engineering of quantum materials in samples and devices and their potential connections to industrial applications. The goal of this symposium is to provide an interactive forum to facilitate materials scientists from all these three fields to communicate cutting-edge progress and discuss synergistic collaborations. Specific sessions will be organized regarding the scientific theme topics to benefit cross-fertilization.

Topics will include:

  • Topological quantum materials; Strongly correlated quantum materials
  • Photonic quantum materials; Quantum simulations based on materials
  • Phonon spectroscopy for quantum measurements
  • Microscopy probe for quantum entanglement
  • Ultrafast quantum control; Interface control of quantum states
  • Synthesis of quantum materials; Quantum sensors
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
