General Lab Information


There has been ever growing interests during recent decades in creating and investigating extreme quantum matter in its various forms, encompassing a broad range of physics disciplines.

At high energy colliders like the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the smallest yet the hottest and most perfect quantum fluid droplets are routinely made and probed. They offer a unique environment for exploring novel phenomena, with the notable example of Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME) that pertains to some of the most fundamental aspects in physics: gauge field topology, fermion chirality and quantum anomaly. Interestingly, such phenomena as CME can also occur in many other physical systems from condensed matter to compact stars and the cosmos, which indeed has been discovered in topological phases of matter (known as 3D Dirac and Weyl semimetals) via tabletop experiments.

Forward-looking, the future Electron-Ion Collider will allow the generation and measurements of the densest form of gluonic matter (known as a Color Glass Condensate, or CGC), the understanding of which would much deepen our knowledge about the gluons that bind us all as well as advance our interpretation of initial conditions for collisions at RHIC and the LHC. Adding yet another layer of intrigue, these forms of extreme quantum matter start to show nontrivial potential for exploring quantum information science, either via new quantum devices based on CME in condensed matter or as new venues of testing quantum entanglement at colliders like RHIC, LHC and EIC.

This symposium aims to facilitate vibrant discussions on these topics and will strive to encourage bold presentation of new ideas and visionary outlook into the future. With this 1st Circular, we hope you can mark your calendar and consider joining us. A web page for the symposium is under construction and will become available soon, where you will be able to find more detailed information about the meeting. Meanwhile, please feel free to reach out to the organizers if you may have any questions. We look forward to seeing many of you at the symposium.
