Topological insulator devices and materials

A two-day workshop on experiments and theory of topological insulator-based devices and materials.

Topological insulators (TIs) are a promising platform for a range of electronic and quantum devices. TIs can be integrated into nanofabricated circuits and combined with other materials such as superconductors to realize exotic effects with a wide range of potential applications.

NPL is hosting a workshop where the latest development in this exciting area will be discussed.

Participation is free of charge. The registration deadline is the 3rd of June.

Topics include

  • Synthesis and growth of TI materials & materials characterisation
  • TI device fabrication and characterisation
  • TI device theory
  • Hybrid devices where TIs are combined with other materials to realize novel devices

The workshop will include invited talks, contributed talks and a poster session.

Confirmed speakers include

Benjamin Beri                                    University of Cambridge, UK
Martin Alexander Endres                   University of Basel, Germany     
Malcolm Connolly                              Imperial College London, UK       
Masaya Kataoka                               National Physical Laboratory, UK
Cosimo Gorini                                   Universit√© Paris-Saclay, CEA, CNRS, SPEC, France

There will be a maximum of 50 participants.

This workshop is being organised as part of the H2020 HiTIMe project and we acknowledge support from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant agreement No. 766714/HiTIMe.
