Workshop on Topological Phase Transitions and New Developments

Earlier this year, I got a physics fix from a workshop on topological phase transitions conducted by the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) Singapore.

It was wonderful to learn more about the condensed matter systems I’m more familiar with, and also the optical counterparts (photonic lattices). The workshop was timed very nicely on the back of the 2016 announcement of the Nobel Prize in Physics — and Haldane actually brought along his medal for photos!
