Summer School: Magnetic Solotronics in Semiconductors and Dirac Materials

June 15-20, 2015; Lake Como School of Advanced Studies, Como, Italy

At this five-day school, students will have a unique opportunity to learn about the fundamentals of single dopants in both traditional semiconductor systems and more complex Dirac materials and topological insulators and superconductors. Extensive formal lectures on these subjects will be given by pioneering scientists who have played seminal roles in the development of these areas. Our list of lecturers currently includes:

 – David Awschalom (University of Chicago, USA)

 – Alexander Balatsky (Nordita, Sweden)

 – Michael Flatté (University of Iowa, USA)

 – Ewelina Hankiewicz (University of Würzburg, Germany)

 – Paul Koenraad (TU Eindhoven, Netherlands)

 – Daniel Loss (University of Basel, Switzerland)

 – Sven Rogge (University of New South Wales, Australia)

 – Nitin Samarth (Penn State University, USA)

 – Biplab Sanyal (Uppsala University, Sweden)

 – Paolo Sessi (University of Würzburg, Germany)

Topics covered will include the foundational theoretical framework needed to describe these systems as well as the experimental techniques that are used to probe them and computational tools used to model the actual material systems. To supplement this, students will also be able to participate in less formal tutorial sessions on specially chosen focus topics. Students will also have an opportunity to share their own work in related areas during evening poster sessions, and to interact with the lecturers and with other participants during breaks and meals. All sessions will be held at the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies, situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Como, Italy.
