Defects for Quantum Technologies
The possibility of quantum applications in computing, metrology, and communication have rejuvenated the interest in detailed study of point defects. This session with focus on theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum defects for such applications.

Theoretical and Experimental Methods for Defect Identification
One of the key challenges in order to mitigate or exploit their properties is identifying the microscopic chemical nature of the point defects that exist in a material. This session will focus on experimental and theoretical efforts to address this problem.
