The QS³ is an annual summer school with the mission of training graduate students and postdocs in condensed matter, materials, and related fields for the next "quantum revolution." The aim is to provide students an interactive learning experience with both theoretical and experimental leaders in the field and a connection to new technology. The 2018 school is focused on Quantum Materials. QS³ is supported by the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research,

The program for the 2019 QS3 Summer School will focus on the growing field of quantum devices including Majoranas, photonics, spintronics, superconductors, 2D materials, and heterostructures. Quantum devices that both rely on inherently quantum phenomena as well as those that can uniquely probe quantum phenomena are included.  The basic fundamentals of these systems as well as their connections to applications will be covered.  Real-life demonstrations and hands-on exercises will also be emphasized.

Interested graduate students and postdocs are encouraged to apply. Information about financial support can be found here. Please note that partial participation is strongly discouraged.
