About the conference:

We're thrilled to announce the inaugural "Crystals for Quantum Technology: CFQT2023" national conference series. Quantum materials, especially high-quality crystals and thin films, are leading the charge in quantum science, poised to drive technological progress and lucrative ventures. This gathering aims to unite trailblazers nationwide, evaluating expertise, research focus, and collective strengths in line with the newly revealed "Indian National Quantum Mission."

The event seeks to foster networking, enable interdisciplinary dialogues, and spark collaborative initiatives, catalyzing stronger research ties within India's scientific community and accelerating quantum technology advancements.

"CFQT2023" will spotlight thin films and heterostructures in quantum materials. The subsequent year, the focus shifts to bulk single crystals for quantum technology. Future editions will alternate chapters, uniting experts, emerging researchers, and students with a shared goal: advancing quantum materials research to significantly impact the "Indian National Quantum Mission" and the broader field of quantum technology.
