2022 Theory Winter School

The National High Magnetic Field Lab in Tallahassee, Florida held its tenth annual Theory Winter School virtually from January 10 to 14, 2022.

  • Overview

    This year's theme is non-equilibrium quantum matter. We aim to communicate exciting new developments in this area of condensed matter physics to a wide audience. Many aspects of this subject (eigenstate thermalization, many-body localization, quantum scars, Floquet theory, random circuits, etc.) have become active research areas thanks to new analytic insights and computational algorithms. We will initiate dialogue among various subfields and between theory and experiment, with an eye on simulating non-equilibrium dynamics on intermediate-scale quantum computers.

  • About the MagLab

     

    The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (less formally known as the Magnet Lab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world, headquartered in a sprawling 370,000-square-foot complex near Florida State University in Tallahassee. The lab also includes sites at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the University of Florida in Gainesville. Together these three institutions operate the lab, collaborating in a unique, interdisciplinary way to advance basic science, engineering and technology in the 21st century.

    Established by the National Science Foundation in 1990, the lab is a national resource open to both curious visitors and world-renowned scientists. Centralizing the country's greatest magnet-related tools, resources and expertise is not only efficient and cost-effective, but also encourages fruitful, collaborative research at the highest level. Every year, more than 900 visiting scientists and engineers from across the world conduct experiments using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our magnets are far larger, far more powerful and far more complex than the everyday magnets most people are familiar with. Many were designed, developed and built by our magnet engineering and design team, widely recognized as the finest in the world.
