Topotronics2015: The 1st International Workshop on the Topological Electronics


Monday, March 9, 2015 - 09:00 to Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - 12:00




“Topological Electronics” is a new paradigm of electronics which utilizes novel quantum degrees of freedom
including geometrical phase (Berry phase), topological insulator, and non-local coherence or entanglement.
In the Topological Electronics the electrical control of geometrically protected quantum phenomena is the
key element providing dissipationless electronics and technical breakthroughs for future electronics and
solid state quantum information technologies. A geometry-related quantum nature of the states and their
interactions plays an essential role in spin-orbit interaction, topological insulators, topological
superconductivity and Majorana fermions, and quantum correlations including non-local generation of
entanglement. In this workshop, we particularly focus on such representative quantum phenomena in lowdimensional
electronic systems.
