Berry phase played an important role in quantum mechanics and underlying the physics of a wide range of materials from topological phases of matters to various 2D materials. While the effect of Berry phase has been extensively studied and shown through quantized electron transport experiment, the geometric aspect of wavefunction— determined by Berry curvature has remained much less understood experimentally. In this talk, I will use bilayer graphene as a model system to demonstrate effects of Berry phase and Berry curvature on materials’ electronic and optical...

Workshop on 2D Quantum Metamaterials

  • By Leena Aggarwal
  • 8 January 2018

The workshop on 2D Quantum Metamaterials is dedicated to the commonalities between fabrication, theoretical prediction, and alternative approaches to tunable quantum materials, including cold-atom realizations. Theoretical efforts served by this new simulation platform include Hubbard model systems, design of 2D materials, and other exotic materials.

The workshop will be organized around:

1. all-invited talks by leading researchers

2. breakout sessions for discussions and future plan

3. published Workshop Summary Report
