We are delighted to announce the SPICE-Workshop on “2D van der Waals Spin Systems» which will be held from 4th-7th of August, 2020 on-line.


The successful realization of 2D-layered vdW ferromagnetic materials in 2017 connected the topic of 2D vdW magnets to spintronics. This has allowed us to explore novel spintronic effects, the fundamentals physics of 2D magnetism, as well as control of magnetism by external stimuli such as electric field, current and mechanical strain.


The timely workshop will address key questions such as, what is spin dynamics properties at the truly one-monolayer limit?; Can we apply the same spin transport theories to materials at the 2D limit?; What novel spintronic and magnonic phenomena belongs only to the 2D-magnets and/or multi-layers with them? This workshop will bridge across different areas of modern condensed matter physics and materials science, specifically the vast research field of 2D materials and the spintronics field that exploits spin degree of freedom in non-2D systems.


If you would like to attend the workshop, the application deadline is July 15th, 2020 (https://www.spice.uni-mainz.de/2d-2020-home/). The workshop is free of charge to attend, but registration is mandatory in order to get the correct Zoom log-in information and further information.


We kindly ask you to share this information with colleagues and students that may be interested in participating. Any questions regarding the workshop can be directed to spice@uni-mainz.de.
