Quantum many body effects that alter the macroscopic behaviour of materials give rise to exciting new phenomena to be exploited in future quantum technology. This workshop focuses on novel experimental capabilities for the discovery of exotic phases and characterisation of their fundamental excitations. We aim on bringing together the most recent advances in quantum many body physics and materials science, thereby showing how exceptional materials properties can be obtained by controlling electronic and magnetic properties by materials design and by application of external stimuli such as temperature, magnetic field and pressure.

The program comprises state-of-the-art talks on the frontier of the field followed by a detailed discourse on the most advanced experimental techniques at the ESRF. In this context, a special focus is dedicated to the new high-pressure beamline ID27 with its outstanding capabilities for experiments at extreme pressures and temperatures combined with state-of-the art sample environments. We will furthermore discuss future challenges beyond current capabilities to define possible efforts in experimental developments.
