Dirac Materials, Superconductivity and Hybrid Nanostructures

We are witnessing a tremendous growth of the activities in materials that host Dirac fermions, also known as Dirac Materials. The unique properties of the linear Dirac spectrum point to interesting ways to functionalize these materials for new applications. Complementary to that discussion we shall cover the role of nanoscale superconductors and particular interest will be paid to hybrid structures that bring into contact different competing phases.


The workshop will be in the style of a conference, with talks and time for discussions.


Below is a tentative timetable for the meeting. (Note that the schedule for Monday has been changed to accommodate the special seminar at 2pm.)

Please note, the links to the slides for each presentation have now been removed. If you wish to have a copy of a particular talk, please email David Abergel directly.
