Fundamentals of Quantum Materials
While at UMD, I helped organize and write a textbook for our workshop regarding quantum material synthesis and characterization. This winter school and workshop is targeted toward graduate students and postdoctoral research who are interested in adding new synthetic and characterization techniques to their research.
The winter school is very useful in covering a broad range of synthesis techniques such as flux growth, chemical vapor transport, arc-melting, hydrothermal, etc. The winter school has both lectures and hands-on practicals to show attendees the different techniques and how they can use them for their research needs. It also serves as a wonderful opportunity to network and meet collaborators in our community of interdisciplinary researchers interested in quantum material synthesis and characterization. The workshop is held after the winter school and typically focuses more in-depth on one topic per year and hosts lectures and research talks given by the leading scientists in the field.
Links to the Fundamentals of Quantum Materials textbook and the annual FQM winter school and workshop are listed below. Lectures + resources from previous years are available as well.
