Princeton University, supported by the Condensed Matter Physics Program in the NSF Division of Materials Research, will be hosting a workshop to be held at the Hilton Arlington, VA, adjacent to the NSF headquarters, on May 23 and 24, 2016. The goal of the workshop is to explore topics at the frontier in the investigation of topological phases of matter. The workshop will include researchers from universities and national laboratories and will discuss current and emerging trends. The workshop will focus on:
  • Experimental results in topological insulators and topological superconductors
  • Proximity and edge effects
  • Interplay between topology and strong correlation
  • Possible topological states not covered by the classification scheme of non-interacting fermions
  • New materials and topological states (including Dirac and Weyl fermions)
  • Topological insulators emerging from combining non-interacting band theory
  • Topological phases with non-trivial excitations beyond the quantum Hall regime
Discussions will focus on the future challenges in this field, as well as discuss how the community as a whole can better educate the public about the science of topological phases of matter.
