On an irregular basis various Special Seminars take place at the MPQ. The seminars are organized by scientists of our divisions, administration or staff representatives. The location will be announced with the event.

Non-symmorphic route to nodal semimetals (Tomas Bzdusek)

Nodal semimetals are materials in which the conduction and the valence bands touch at points or lines in the Brillouin zone. Such nodal band structures manifest themselves in unusual transport phenomena as well as in topologically protected surface states. ... [more]

Understanding Contextuality as a Quantum Computational Resource without Wigner Functions (Dr. J. Bermejo-Vega)

A central question in quantum computation is to identify the resources that are responsible for quantum speed-up. Quantum contextuality has been recently shown to be a resource for quantum computation with magic states for odd-prime dimensional qudits and two-dimensional systems with real wavefunctions. ...

This talk aims to offer insight into the latest developments at the APS Editorial Office and its flagship publication. [more]
The Quantum Community in Munich launches its International Max Planck Research School for Quantum Science and Technology (IMPRS-QST). To this end, we celebrate the IMPRS Launch with several Quantum talks on Thursday at the Herbert Walther lecture hall (MPQ,Garching). On Friday afternoon, our members from the Walther-Meissner Institute will present their work on the MQC Workshop together with a subsequent poster session. [more]
Cold atoms can now be routinely prepared and precisely controlled for the study of quantum physics. [more]
