Quantum Design UK and Ireland are proud sponsors

This two-day meeting is supported by the IOP Low Temperature, Magnetism and Superconductivity Groups and will be held in the School of Physics at the University of Bristol on the 9 -10 January 2020.

The focus will be on new developments in the fields of hard electronic condensed matter, encompassing superconductivity, magnetism, 2D materials, strong spin-orbit systems and beyond. It is organised and supported by the UK’s two EPSRC funded Centre’s for Doctoral Training in Condensed Matter Physics: the CDT-CMP and the CM-CDT.

The conference is open to all researchers. We strongly encourage student participation from all related research groups in the UK and beyond.


Register online here before 15 December 2019:


Dr Neil Wilson
University of Warwick, UK

Dr Wilson’s works on correlating atomic and mesoscale structure with physical properties in nanomaterials, with an emphasis on quantitative measurements. His current research is mainly on the structural, mechanical, electronic and electrical properties of graphene and other two dimensional materials (2DMs).

Prof. Séamus Davis University of Oxford, UK and
University College Cork, RoI

Prof Davis’s research concentrates on the fundamental physics of electronic, magnetic and atomic quantum matter. His major specialty is development of innovative instrumentation to allow direct visualization (or perception) of characteristic quantum many-body phenomena at atomic scale.

Prof. Kamran Behnia
CNRS & ESPCI Paris, France 

Prof Behnia’s research interests are in collective quantum phenomena in a variety of solids ranging from semimetals to superconductors. He is also the author of the book Fundamentals of Thermoelectricity (Oxford University Press, 2015).

Prof. David Logan
University of Oxford, UK

Prof Logan’s research centres on developing microscopic theories for a variety of phenomena relating to the electronic and magnetic properties of condensed matter. This encompasses both the vast world of the solid state, be it crystalline or amorphous, as well as topical nanoscale systems such as quantum dots and molecular electronic devices. As such his work is very much interdisciplinary, straddling the borders of chemistry and physics.

Free public lecture open to all:
