RESEARCH GROUP / PHYSICS OF QUANTUM MATERIALS

Physics of Quantum Materials Discussion Group

We meet weekly during term time for an informal discussion of relevant topics. All are welcome to join. Location: Online Teams ; before joining the online meeting, please familiarise yourself with our instructions and guidelines.

Organisation

Members take turns for leading the meetings, either by presenting their own research or reviewing a scientific article of choice. Whiteboard presentations are preferred (in the absence of blackboards), but screen and projector could also be used. The atmosphere of the meetings is informal and so are meant to be the presentations. Occasionally the discussion is led by one of our visitors.

If you would like to volunteer for a presentation, please add your name and a topic, below, for an available date (if you do not have editing access to this page, could you please email someone who does – currently that’s all the academics listed under “Faculty” on the “People” page).

Speakers are encouraged to email a title and abstract for their discussion to the group on the day prior to their presentation.
