The Kavli Nanoscience Institute was pleased to host a Kavli Futures Symposium on the Frontiers of Condensed Matter Physics. This special one-day symposium brought together experts to discuss emerging physics and technology from the edge states of surfaces & interfaces of novel materials and nano-metamaterials.
The event featured invited talks from F. Duncan M. Haldane (Princeton), Kang Wang (UCLA) and Yayu Wang (Tsinghua University), and a panel discussion with Zhi-Xun Shen (Stanford), Jochen Mannhart (Max Planck Institute of Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany), Charles Marcus (Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark), Allan MacDonald (University of Texas at Austin) and Xie Chen (Caltech). Professor Jason Alicea (Caltech) served as the moderator. The symposium also included a tour of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, hosted by our wonderful colleagues at the Microdevices Lab.
