Workshop on Topology in Magnetic Materials

Herzberg 193 5025 Asp Switzerland
Jonathan White (Laboratory for Neutron Scattering, Paul Scherrer Institut), Motoaki Hirayama, Naoya Kanazawa, Oksana Zaharko (PSI - Paul Scherrer Institut), Romain Sibille (PSI - Paul Scherrer Institut)

The main goal of the workshop is to bring together experts in the fields of magnetism and topology in order to discuss the accomplished progress and perspectives for future developments in the field of bulk magnetic topological materials. The program will cover fundamental aspects such as symmetry in topology, focus on topological and emergent properties of non-collinear magnets and multi-k spin textures as well as related experimental and theoretical methods. While a broad overview of the field will be discussed, a particular emphasis will be on the application of scattering techniques for the experimental elucidation of complex magnetic phases and textures. We aim to develop interdisciplinary communication and collaborations among internationally leading experts and to encourage young researchers to contribute to the field.


The workshop will be held at the Herzberg near Aarau, about 1 hour from both Zürich and PSI:

Participants with on-site accommodation are expected to arrive on 21st November around 18:00 (dinner included in full board registration fees) and to departure on 24th November around 17:00.


How to get there?
A special bus will depart at 18:10 from Aarau main station (Bahnhof) towards Herzberg on 21st November. The dinner on 21st November is included in the full board registration for participants with on-site accommodation. For participants who would travel outside these time windows, shuttles between the Herzberg and the closest bus stop (Staffelegg, Passhöhe) can be organised on request.

A special bus will depart at 17:00 from Herzberg towards Aarau main station (Bahnhof) on 24th November.
