“Spin Dynamics in the Dirac Systems”, from June 6th to 9th, 2017, at Schloss Waldthausen, Mainz.

Spin Dynamics in the Dirac Systems

Mainz, Germany: June 06th – 09th 2017

The modern scientific research in the condensed matter physics was marked by a newly perceived role of the quantum nature of a spin in the most basic properties of materials. This breakthrough reflected itself as in a new comprehension of fundamental physical symmetries, the conception of the topological classification of the quantum states properties, so in the concrete experimental achievements, some of which are close to the practical applications.

The aim of the SPICE workshop “Spin Dynamics in Dirac System” is to offer a platform for the knowledge exchange between diverse novel condensed matter domains such as topological insulators and superconductors, Weyl physics, topological Josephson junctions, spintronics in graphene, spin valves, spin-logic devices, quantum magnetism, spin lattices, frustrated magnets, spin liquids, non-trivial spin states, etc.

The day schedule of the 4-days workshop is split in 4 sections, four 20+5 minutes talks in a section. Each section devoted to a special topic will start with a tutorial given by a key speaker, and the different sections will be shuffled to create the maximal involvement of all participants into the unfamiliar topics.
