forefront hot topics of today researches in quantum complex matter

Topics and Sessions

Theory and Experiments on QCM

  • Complex multi-scale inhomogeneity,
  • Nano Materials
  • Mott insulators,
  • Spintronics, Spin-orbit coupling, Skirmions,
  • Multi-band Hubbard Model,
  • Lifshitz transition,
  • Fano resonances
  • Metal-to-Insulator transitions
  • Quantum topological phases
  • Unconventional superconductivity
  • Interface superconductivity
  • Ultracold gases, BEC-BCS crossover,
  • Quasi stationary out-off-equilibrium phases

Novel advanced experimental methods for QCM at large facilitiesneutron scattering

  • MuSR, neutron scattering
  • unconventional X-ray scattering experiments
  • time-resolved spectroscopies
  • unconventional microscopies from atomic-, meso- to micron-scale
  • spin resolved-, time resolved-, high resolution-, resonant- ARPES

lectures by leaders in the field will cover both hot topics of Theory and Experiments emphasizing productive use of large neutron, muon and synchrotron radiation facilities.

A hands-on training session and tour will be organized by using synchrotron radiation, the free electron laser and advanced experimental spectrometers at Frascati laboratory. to stimulate interest of motivated graduate students in condensed matter studies using neutrons and muons or synchrotron radiation.

Students and postdocs are invited

  • to participate for the full duration of the QCM2018 workshop,
  • to present a poster
  • to submit a paper for the Proceedings
    which will be published in the open source journal CONDENSED MATTER.

Two prizes will be assigned on the BEST POSTERS in the closing session.

Candidates for attending the QCM2018 workshop of FCMP School have to apply filling the on-line registration.

Students and Postdocs are invited to apply for fellowships offered by SINE2020
which will cover the lodging in the Frascati Laboratory guesthouse or nearby hotels
to be assigned to the students with the best CV.

We look forward to welcoming you in Rome in June 2018!

Graduate lecture course “Frontiers of Condensed Matter Physics” (FCMP) was initiated at Columbia University in New York in 2011 by Yasutomo Uemura. Leading CMP scientists give one or two FCMP lecture(s) each on their own research subjects with special attention to pedagogical, historical and intuitive presentations so that graduate students can enjoy emergent subjects. In the fall 2017 semester the FCMP lectures have been given at Ecole Polytechnique in Palaiseau and Columbia University Global Center in Paris, attended by graduate students, postdocs, and senior scientists from several leading institutions. The lectures have been connected online for simultaneous broadcast at PSI, MPI Hamburg, MPI Dresden, Columbia U and Rutgers U. High quality videos of FCMP lectures are used off-line for graduate courses at U Camerino (Italy), U Oregon Eugene, and U Tokyo.

Since 2014, annual FCMP workshops have been organized previously in Beijing (2014), TRIUMF (2015) and JPARC (2017), so that lecturers, graduate students and other FCMP participants from over the world can get together for direct interaction, further lectures, and hands-on training and facility tours of MuSR and neutron scattering.

The conference is sponsored by MDPI Publishing.

The conference Proceedings will be published as regular articles without charges in a Special Issue of the open source journal Condensed Matter.
We expect that invited speakers and partecipants submit their conference papers at the conference desk.

Awards to the best posters sponsored by MDPI will be assigned in the Closing Session with the condition that the winners will be present and will acknowledge the Journal at the ceremony.
