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 2011/2012 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 (e.g. Collaborative Research Center 631, Excellence Cluster "Nanosystems Initiative Munich")

The seminar is relevant for the special courses on "Superconductivity and Low Temperature Physics" as well as on "Magnetism and Spintronics". It is also suitable for bachelor and master students in the 6. semester and higher.
