Quantum transport in 2D systems - III
Session Workshop VI (W6), May 25 - June 1, 2019

Workshop Organizers:
Alexei Chepelianskii (CNRS - University Paris-Sud), Michel Dyakonov (University of Montpellier), Michael Zudov (University of Minnesota)
Secretary: Malika Bentour , Organization unit: Dima Shepelyansky

Scope: The discovery of the integer quantum Hall effect in Si MOSFET by Klaus von Klitzing in 1980 (1985 Nobel Prize) has launched an exciting research field dealing with quantum phenomena in two-dimensional (2D) systems. Over the years, other successful realizations of 2D systems have become available, bringing further fascinating discoveries. One famous example is a modulation-doped GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure which allowed first observations of fractional quantum Hall effects, stripe and buble phases, microwave-induced resistance oscillations and zero-resistance states, etc. More recent realizations of 2D systems include graphene, oxide interfaces, and transition metal dichalcogenides. In addition, non-degenerate electrons on the cryogenic substrates (e.g. liquid helium) also offer a fascinating platform to investigate quantum properties of 2D electrons. The workshop aims to bring together leading world experts and young researchers working on various aspects of 2D systems to discuss ongoing developments and exchange ideas.

Topics: Quantum Hall effects and related phenomena; roles of different types of disorder on transport phenomena and methods of its characterization; quantum Hall stripes and bubbles; nonequilibrium phenomena in high Landau levels, e.g., microwave and THz-induced photoresistance, zero-resistance states, nonlinear transport, etc.; microwave-driven electrons on the surface of liquid helium; topological phases of condensed matter; new experimental techniques; advances and prospects in growth/fabrication of high quality hetero-structures and 2D materials; other topics related to 2D systems.

Registration and payment: Unlike previous editions of QT2DS, there will be no formal registration fee. However, all participants and accompanying persons will be responsible for their accommodation expenses and will be asked to contribute for lunches (Mon - Fri, 20 EUR per lunch) and social dinner (Thu, 30 EUR) to be paid in cash upon arrival. The workshop will provide bus transfers to and from Toulouse (on May 25 and June 1, respectively) and excursion to mountains and lakes (Sun) both for speakers and for accompanying persons. To guarantee participation, speakers are asked to provide the title of their talk and information on their arrival/departure dates and lunches/dinner/bus transfers (including accompanying persons, if any) by April 15, 2019.

Venue: Scientific sessions will take place at Casino de Luchon, located in Le Parc du Casino, within short walking distance from recommended hotels.

Accommodations: Participants are requested to make their own lodging reservations, e.q., at Alti Hotel, Le Floreal, Apart Hotel Le Petit Train, Hotel Panoramic, or Odalys Residence Illixon. If you plan to have a car or do not mind walking (20 min, 1.5 km), you can consider 1- or 2-bedroom mobile homes at Au fil de l'Oo (approx 300 to 400 EUR/week). More lodging options are available at kayak.com, booking.com (above links are for "single occupancy" with "free cancellation"), and airbnb.com (make sure to check cancellation policy).

Bus transfer from Toulouse to Luchon and back: A bus (FARRUS) will leave Toulouse-Blagnac airport (airport ground level, exit porte D) at 16:45 on May 25 and stop at Gare Routiere at 17:15 to pick up participants from Toulouse-Matabiau railway station. Return bus will depart from Hotel Le Majestic at 9:30 on June 1. The return bus will not stop at the railway station. Estimated travel time is between 1 hour 40 minutes and 2 hours. One can also get to/from Luchon using train/bus, please visit here.

Excursion On Sunday, May 26, there will be excursion to Lac d'Oo. The bus will depart from Hotel Le Majestic at 10:00.
