Started in 2006, Molecular Frontiers operates as a non-profit organization, hosted by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Its Scientific Advisory Board, a group of eminent scientists including many Nobel Prize laureates, represent expertise from a wide range of molecular science disciplines
Title: A Nano Focus on Quantum Materials
Date: Nov 28-29, 2022
Venue: Chalmers Conference Centre,
In collaboration with Chalmers University of Technology, we welcome anyone interested to a symposium on the topic of quantum materials, with several high profile speakers, as listed below.
There will be a large number of high school students present, from Sweden and possibly other countries as well.
Quantum materials have unusual thermal, magnetic, and electrical properties. The ability to understand and engineer these materials and control their properties could virtually revolutionize every aspect of society and economy. It will enable new sustainable quantum technologies ranging from quantum information processing, quantum sensors to novel approaches for resolving healthcare needs.
Welcome to an exciting symposium!
