Novel Quantum States of Matter in Moiré Materials

12 March, 2023 - 17 March, 2023

The advent of moiré quantum materials has opened an entirely new highly tunable platform for exploring the interplay between electronic structure, interactions, symmetry, and topology. Starting with the discovery of correlated insulator states and superconductivity in magic-angle, twisted bilayer graphene (MATBG), a growing variety of moiré systems have emerged. This has resulted in many novel correlated and topological phenomena, including new quantum anomalous Hall systems, generalized Wigner crystals, and integer and fractional Chern insulators, among others. This rich phenomenology has attracted enormous theoretical attention and, simultaneously, the interest of the entire repertoire of experimental condensed matter techniques to deepen our understanding of these exotic phases.

This conference will bring together the broad community of researchers interested in all these topics of moiré materials. We aim to have a healthy mix of experimentalists and theorists and will recruit high quality speakers in all of the topics mentioned above. Finally, as progress in the field has been rapid, a few slots will be reserved for breaking news related to the conference topics.
