Date: 18 May 2017

Venue: UAntwerp, Campus Groenenborger, Building U, room U.241 - Groenenborgerlaan 171 - 2020 Antwerpen (route: UAntwerpen, Campus Groenenborger)

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Short description: Condensed Matter Theory seminar presented by Dr Ortwin Leenaerts

Abstract
I will give an overview of topological band theory through some simple two-band model systems. I will start from diatomic molecules and the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model for polyacetylene and extrapolate the physics of these models to graphene and 3D Weyl semimetals.
