Dear Colleagues welcome to VVoIP_Physics_Debates website and the upcoming online colloquium titled:

1st Floquet Phases of Matter: Time Crystals Debate
October 18th - 19th, 2019

The VVoIP stands for Voice and Video over Internet Protocol and allows everyone to participate at low-budget directly from your office in a scientific panel discussion on the subjects related to your interests and research.

The VVoIP_Physics_Debates are effective, convenient, and inexpensive video-conferencing encouraging the free and effective exchange of ideas, concepts and research results. 

Indeed we offer you "science in sleepers" by promoting world-class research exchange in a modern way and easy to use/reliable modern communication. We ask you to join us and actively participate. Meet experts & influencers face to face.

We describe below all pertinent information. However, do not hesitate to ask our supporting organizational staff.

Kind regards, Organizational Committees.

Scope

The 1st Floquet Phases of Matter is a forum for the Debate of leading scientists about Time Crystals ( ({\displaystyle t\to t+nT}). A time crystal or space-time crystal is a structure that repeats in time, as well as in space. Normal three-dimensional crystals have a repeating pattern in space, but remain unchanged as time passes. Time crystals repeat themselves in time as well, leading the crystal to change from moment to moment. A time crystal never reaches thermal equilibrium, as it is a type of non-equilibrium matter, a form of matter proposed in 2012, and first observed in 2017. The idea of a time crystal was first described by Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek in 2012. Later work developed a more precise definition for time crystals. It was proven that they cannot exist in equilibrium. Then, in 2014 Krzysztof Sacha predicted the behavior of discrete-time crystals in a periodically-driven many-body system and in 2016, Norman Yao et al. proposed a different way to create time crystals in spin systems. From there, Christopher Monroe and Mikhail Lukin independently confirmed this in their labs. Both experiments were published in Nature in 2017.

Scientific Committee

Dr. Matteo (Matt) Ferensby - Coordinator and Moderator.

Look for updates.

Topics

The entire meeting will take a form of the PANEL DISCUSSION and will concern o non-equilibrium Floquet systems, i.e. systems undergoing coherent time-periodic dynamics.

  • Time Crystals (Classical, Quantum, Floquet)
  • Thermal Machines and Transport
  • Floquet Engineering
