International Workshop on the Mechanism of
High Temperature Superconductors
June 18-22,2001 Lijiang, China
SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP

    The mechanism of high temperature cuprate and the newly discovered superconductors has received enormous interests in the field of condensed matter physics. This workshop is specially dedicated to this focused issue. Scientists from different labs will gather in Lijiang, a very beautiful and historical city in Yunnan province of China, to enjoy the recent development, to present their views and ideas, and to reach a further scheme for these superconductors.

会议代表合影

2001年6月18-22日,由超导国家重点实验室主办,中科院物理所、美国斯坦福大学、中科院国际合作局(南南合作基金)和清华大学支持并协办的国际高温超导机理研讨会,在云南丽江召开。来自大陆、香港、台湾、美国和日本的30余名正式代表参加了会议。参加者包括在高温超导机制领域享有重要影响的理论和实验科学家,如诺贝尔奖获得者R. B. Laughlin教授,Onnes 奖获得者美国斯坦福大学著名学者沈志勋教授,日本超导研究著名学者 S. Uchida 教授等。共有23人在会上作了口头报告,其中18人作了邀请报告。报告之后,由著名学者张守晟教授主持了两个小时的自由讨论。会上大家争论激烈,涉及到高温超导体的一些根本问题,如Mott绝缘体对高温超导电性的出现是否是关键性的,准粒子是否仍然是描述强关联材料的一个有效概念,不均匀电子相是否是本征特性等等。最后R. B. Laughlin教授作了生动的总结发言。大家都表示从众多高水平的报告中学到很多东西并了解到最新的进展。
    这次会议起到了增进交流、扩大影响和加强合作的作用。会间和会后,很多与会者找到了共同感
兴趣的课题。
