AWG on Experimental Probes in Topological Materials

18th and 19th February 2011, Royal Holloway University of London



The Advanced Working Group on Experimental Probes for Topological Materials aims at stimulating a discussion between theorists and experimentalists on how to identify distinctive manifestations of topological phases and boundary states in real materials. Experimentalists will have the possibility to carefully scrutinise the most promising theoretical proposals, while theorists will learn more about what experimental settings and techniques are available and what they can / cannot achieve.

Some of the topics that the meeting aims to cover are:

  1. realising and probing Majorana fermions in 1D networks, 3He systems, p-wave superconductors, etc.
  2. what experimental probes are available for topological insulators?
  3. topological aspects and unconventional pairing in non-centrosymmetric superconductors

The meeting is organised around a few overview talks. These talks are intended not to present one's own work only but rather to discuss the state of the art of the field and highlight interesting issues and open questions. The overview talks will be complemented by a limited number of 10 min presentations where participants can present very latest results, ongoing work, or comment on known theoretical or experimental results. An integral part of the workshop will be extended chaired discussion periods, during which previous themes will be revisited.
