Within the seminar students can give talks on current topics in solid-state physics. The seminar aims to give a closer look at new developments in solid-state physics and to show how these developments can be transferred into applications. In the winter semester 2009/2010 the seminar will focus on spin electronics, solid-state quantum information processing, the physics of solid-state nanostructures, and high temperature superconductivity (including the previously discovered FeAs superconductors). These topics are in the focus of several research programs of WMI.

List of open topics for seminar talks in WS 2009/2010 and the forthcoming semester:

  1. Exploration of Non-local Effects and Quantum Correlations Using Cooper Pair Splitters
  2. Locking Electron Spins by Electron-Nuclear Feedback
  3. The Quantum Optical Josephson Interferometer
  4. Spiral Spin States
  5. Microwave ac Quantum Transport and Shot Noise in Mesoscopic Conductors
  6. Reveiling the Fermi Surface of Superconductors by Magnetic Quantum Oscillations
  7. Raman Scattering on Metals and Superconductors
  8. Experiments at High Pressure (Quantum Critical Phenomena, Electronic and Lattice Instabilities)
  9. Thermodynamics of Phase Diagrams
