Hamburg Photon Science Colloquium | Function follows form: Shape controlling quantum materials

by Philip Moll (MPI for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Hamburg)


The electronic functionality of quantum materials is governed by their physical shape. Focused Ion Beams are a promising technology to shape chemically complex crystals on the micron scale in 3D. I will review examples in which the shape dictates electronic properties of topological, ballistic and strongly correlated conductors, giving a taste of the upcoming activities at the new „microstructured quantum matter“ department at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD).

Coffee, tea and cake will be served at 1:45 pm. 

It is recommended to wear a FFP2-mask before, during and after the HHPS colloquium - also at the buffet.
