Shedding light on correlated electrons

The 2015 MaNEP Winter School combines introductory courses with more specialized lectures in the field of correlated quantum matter. The school aims at a broad introduction to topics of current interest in condensed-matter physics. This year, a special focus is devoted to spectroscopies of materials with strong electron correlations, especially time-resolved techniques. Three long lectures will provide an introduction to these materials and their electronic structure, to the fundamental aspects of optics and non-linear optics in solids, and to superconductivity and topological superconductors. Five shorter lectures will cover: neutron scattering, recent advances on cuprate superconductors using photoemission and resonant spectroscopies, introductions to time-resolved spectroscopies and to the theory of non-equilibrium dynamics of strongly-correlated systems. The school targets an audience at the doctoral and post-doctoral levels. A background in general condensed-matter physics should be sufficient. All lectures are given in English.
