If you have a question about this talk, please contact Leona Hope-Coles.

Materials demarcate periods of human civilization. The current period can be argued as defined by silicon, the magic stone that transformed the way we live. In this talk, I will discuss how the concept of quantum, and the 1st wave of quantum revolution led to the rise of silicon, integrated circuit, Silicon Valley and the information age. I will then discuss the opportunities and challenges in materials where silicon class theory fails. The focus will be on modern spectroscopy tools in aiding the development of quantum many-body theory, by testing ideas, discovering surprises and benchmarking theories, aiming at a new wave of quantum, in search for the next magic stone.
