SPP1285 Review Meeting
(no talk)


Within the seminar students can give talks on current topics in condensed matter physics. The seminar aims to give a closer look at new developments in condensed matter physics and to show how these developments can be transferred into applications. In the winter semester 2010/2011 the seminar will again 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 and collaborative research programs in the Munich area.

  1. Half-integer Flux Quantum Transitions in a Niobium-Iron Pnictide Loop
  2. Quantum Ground State and Single Phonon Control of a Mechanical Resonator
  3. Strong Coupling between Spins and Cavities
  4. The Superconducting Quantum Interference Proximity Effect Transistor
  5. Fermi-surface Reconstruction and the Origin of High-temperature Superconductivity
  6. Charge-4e Superconductivity
  7. Nernst Effect and Dimensionality in the Quantum Limit
  8. Anisotropic Magneto-Coulomb Effects
