Symmetry, Topology and Electronic Phases of Matter: 2015 Oppenheimer Lecture

Lecture | February 8 | 5:30-6:30 p.m. | International House, Chevron Auditorium

Charles Kane, Professor of Physics, University of Pennsylvania

Department of Physics

Symmetry and topology are two of the conceptual pillars that underlie our understanding of matter.   While both ideas are old, over the past several years a new appreciation of their interplay has led to dramatic progress in our understanding of topological electronic phases.  A paradigm that has emerged is that insulating electronic states with an energy gap fall into distinct topological...   More >
