GRS - Ultrafast Phenomena in Cooperative Systems

Date Sa, 01.02.2020 - So, 02.02.2020
Location Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco, Lucca, Italy
Program The Gordon Research Seminar on Ultrafast Phenomena in Cooperative Systems - Interactions in Cooperative Systems Studied by Ultrafast Excitation of Collective Modes - is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is to explore the nature of the interactions which are responsible for coupling different degrees of freedom in cooperative systems, and for eventually defining their complex phase diagrams. Such a challenge can now be tackled via combinations of the new ultrafast techniques which have been at the core of previous editions on the seminar, and which can be chosen in such a way to selectively drive and follow specific responses of the materials across the electromagnetic spectrum. This approach is essential to understand a diverse range of systems in quantum condensed matter, e.g. two-dimensional materials, correlated electron materials, ferroic systems, topological phases. It can also be used to explore synthetic quantum systems such as exciton-polaritons, metamaterials, and heterostructures. The specific list of topics will, as usual, depend on the range of abstracts submitted.
Application Instructions

The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by November 1, 2019. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Program Format

Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
