The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will host a symposium, “Emergent Quantum Materials and Technologies,” or EQUATE, March 26-27 at the Willa Cather Dining Complex, 530 N. 17th St., Red Cloud Rooms A, B and C.
The program will include scientific presentations by renowned guest speakers from throughout the nation, including Nebraska experts, on quantum materials, technologies and information processing. In addition, a poster session will spark discussion among invited speakers, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate researchers.
Nebraska’s EQUATE group includes physicists, chemists and engineers from universities throughout the state, including UNL, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, the University of Nebraska at Kearney and Creighton University. The EQUATE event aims to gather internationally renowned experts in quantum topics for scientific dialogue.
Christian Binek, professor of physics and astronomy and interim director of the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience, is leader of Nebraska’s EQUATE team. He said he plans for the symposium to result in the exchange of cutting-edge results, ideas and developments in the rapidly evolving EQUATE field.
The Office of Research and Economic Development and the Nebraska Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, or EPSCoR, are funding the event.
