The primary objective of this workshop was to bring together leading experimentalists and theoreticians to present and discuss/debate recent advances in condensed matter physics as seen through the lens of an SPM. The secondary objective was to offer a set of introductory tutorials aimed at educating students at the graduate level and researchers unfamiliar with the field. The discussion topics emphasized high-resolution spectroscopy, quasi-particle interference, high-temperature superconductivity in the cuprates and pnictides, spin-polarized SPM, and ultrafast time resolved SPM.
The workshop was successful in both counts attracting forty scientists ranging from UBC undergraduate and graduate students to international post-doctoral fellows and leading researchers. The workshop was also a great opportunity to showcase the newly built UBC laboratory for advanced atomic research to the scanning probe microscopy community. Alongside, it also allowed strengthening the scientific ties between UBC and the Max-Planck Institute. It was instrumental setting the roots of future collaboration and exchange of students and post-doctoral fellows between the two institutions.
