Frontiers in modern nano-magnetism: Spin structure and spin dynamics

Time period: 2010-01-01 to 2010-12-31

Project leader: Björgvin Hjörvarsson

Funder: Swedish Research Council

Type of award: Project grant

Total fundning: 106 500 SEK

The purpose is to provide state of the art knowledge on spin dynamics and spin structures as well as perspectives on recent developments. The target group is advanced master and PhD students as well as senior researchers. The focus will be on the fundamentals of magnetic excitations, phase transitions, and techniques to explore the dynamical aspects of magnetism. The participants will obtain up-to-date knowledge of the most recent developments within the field.This event is fourth in the series of the joint Swedish-German initiative within the field of modern magnetism, starting at Haus Villigst, Schwerte, Germany in 2007 followed by summer schools in Nässlingen, Sweden (2008), Wolfsburg, Germany (2009).All the invited speakers are well known experts within their fields and there will be substantial time reserved for discussions with them
