Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Within the seminar students give talks on current topics in condensed matter physics. The students obtain detailed advise in preparing their presentations. The seminar aims to give a closer look at new developments in condensed matter physics and to show how these developments can be transferred into applications. The seminar puts particular focus on the topics spin electronics, solid-state quantum information processing, the physics of solid-state nanostructures, and high temperature superconductivity (including the recently discovered FeAs superconductors). These topics are in the focus of several collaborative research programs in the Munich area (e.g. Collaborative Research Center 631, Excellence Cluster "Nanosystems Initiative Munich").
Within the module the students acquire the following knowledge and skills:
1) Preparation and presentation of scientific talks. 2) Analysis and assessment of topical issues in condensed matter physics. 3) Expressing and understanding the foundations of spin electronics, solid-state quantum information processing, the physics of solid-state nanostructures, and high temperature superconductivity. explain and specify phase-coherent transport phenomena in low-dimensional electron systems. 4) Leading a scientific discussion.
