A key component of breakthroughs in various fields of research is often the synthesis of new materials and their single crystal growth. Currently, many quantum materials are emerging from the synthesis efforts of active scientists. This workshop aims to bring together junior and senior experts working on the synthesis of novel quantum materials to exchange ideas.

The Scientific Facility "Crystal Growth” at MPI-FKF are organizing this event with support of the Takagi Department inorder to construct a platform of materials synthesis and crystal growth in Europe. The workshop also thanks Dr. Reinhard Kremer on the occasion of his retirement for his long-lasting contributions to new materials synthesis, crystal growth and characterization over decades at MPI-FKF.
