Summer School on Condensed Matter Physics 2021 (virtual)

PSSCMP 2021: "Novel Excitations in Correlated Materials"

PCCM hosted a virtual Princeton Summer School on Condensed Matter Physics (PSSCMP) from Monday, June 7 - Thursday, June 10, 2021. PSSCMP is in its 17th year, having its inaugural year in 2005. 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

Joseph Falson - "Correlated States in Ultra-Pure Oxides" available on Princeton's Media Central

Pablo Jarillo-Herrero - "Moiré Magic 3.0" available on Princeton's Media Central

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 2021 is Novel Excitations in Correlated Materials. The PSSCMP 2021 was FREE and open to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the sciences all over the world. Senior undergraduates were also welcome to participate. Covering both fundamental ideas as well as recent theoretical and experimental results, this summer school prepares participants for research in the field 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 was co-sponsored by the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS).
