SWM 2018 -A key event for the Swiss quantum matter community

More than 150 physicists and material scientists joined the 12th edition of SWM in Les Diablerets showing that this meeting continues to be a key event for the Swiss quantum matter community.

The workshop, held over 3 days in August 2018, showed a strong interest in core areas of MaNEP and took up several emerging new topics including antiferromagnetic spintronics, topological aspects of quantum matter and 2D van der Waals materials. Inspirational talks by talented students and international leaders and two well attended poster sessions stimulated lively discussions triggering new ideas and collaborations. Warm thanks to all the speakers, poster presenters participants and sponsors for contributing to the success of SWM.
