Time

Thursday, 17.15  18.30 h
Coffee, tea and cookies at 17.00 h

Place

Lecture Hall 3, Physics Department, Research Campus Garching


Seminar on "Advances in Solid State Physics" ( "Fortschritte in der Festkörperphysik" ) 
Time

Tuesday, 10.15  11.45 h

Place

Seminar Room 143, WaltherMeißnerInstitute (partly shifted to room 128 due to construction activity)
WaltherMeißnerStr. 8,
Research Campus Garching 
Start
 10.04.2018 and 17.04.2018:
preliminary discussion at 10.15h in room 128 of the WMI, assignment of topics to students also on consultation (phone: 089289 14201) (a list of possible topics for talks given by students are available here)
Within the seminar students can give talks on current topics in condensed matter
physics. The focus of the seminar is on spin electronics, spin dynamics, solidstate quantum information processing, physics of solidstate nanostructures, and high temperature superconductivity (including the recently discovered FeAs superconductors).
The seminar is relevant for the special courses on "Superconductivity
and Low Temperature Physics", "Applied Superconductivity" as well as on "Magnetism and Spintronics". It is suitable for bachelor and master students in the 6. semester and higher.
Seminar talks can be given either in English or in German.
