10.-15.08.2008 Summer School "New materials for Spintronics, Theory and Experiments" in Dresden

4th Summer school of MAINZ and 7th International Symposium on New Materials with High Spin Polarization - New materials for spintronics, theory and experiment.

Time: Summer school: August 10.-15. 2008, Symposium: August 14.-15. 2008

Location: Hotel Elbschlösschen, Kurort Rathen near Dresden, Germany

The summer school and symposium will cover the field of new materials for spintronics. The symposium presents talks about selected experimental and theoretical methods that will summarize the latest developments in the search for new materials. Introductory courses for students will be held at the first two days about the basics of magnetic materials, theoretical methods to predict their properties, experimental methods to study their properties and protec-tion by patents.
