Summer School on Condensed Matter Physics 2020 (virtual)

PSSCMP 2020:

"Magnetism in Quantum Materials"

This year, PCCM hosted a virtual Princeton Summer School on Condensed Matter Physics (PSSCMP) from Monday, June 8 - Monday, June 15, 2020. The program was open to both Princeton and non-Princeton graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the sciences, and was held via a series of webinars

The summer school is a condensed matter physics education program that focuses on theoretical and experimental research of quantum many-body systems. The theme for 2020 was “Magnetism in Quantum Materials,” which provided researchers with exposure to forefront topics in experimental and theoretical research of quantum materials. Lectures are of pedagogical aim and the organization of all programming is conducted by Princeton graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, with only modest faculty oversight. The PSSCMP will be co-sponsored by the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS).

This year, PSSCMP boasted almost 240 registered attendees and 35 registered poster presenters from all around the world. Likewise, the program hosted 14 total lectures given by 9 speakers from 6 different universities across the United States. 

Prof. Kin Fai Mak of Cornell University discusses his research during the virtual PSSCMP.
