From Fundamentals to the Future: Advancing Functionalities of Two‐Dimensional Quantum Materials

Taiwanese-German WE-Heraeus-Seminar

14 Jul - 18 Jul 2024


Evangelische Akademie Tutzing

Scientific organizers:

Prof. Dr. Klaus Richter and Dr. Angelika Knothe, U Regensburg • Prof. Ming‐Hao Liu and Prof. Tse‐Ming Chen, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan

This Binational WE-Heraeus-Seminar will bring together distinguished researchers, mainly from Germany and Taiwan, to explore cutting-edge topics in low-dimensional materials, correlated systems, and quantum technologies, spanning both theory and experiment. The multifaceted electronic, optical, topological, and mechanical properties of low-dimensional quantum materials and atomic lattices and their exceptional variability and tunability make them promising candidates for new and improved (quantum) technologies.

In this four-day workshop, we invite experienced colleagues and, in particular, young researchers to share their latest work on the physics of low-dimensional materials regarding the fundamentals of novel quantum properties and potential future applications. We will build and foster scientific connections between Germany and Taiwan, theory and experiment, fundamental science and applications, and between current academic research and the semiconductor industry.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
