Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Recently, there has been a considerable interest in the study of magnetic metamaterials from the application (for e.g. from a next generation hard-disk data storage perspective) as well as fundamental physics perspectives (such as study of artificial spin ice systems). In the proseminar, the talks given by the students address timely topics covering various aspects of research in magnetic metamaterials, e.g., how magnetic metamaterial are prepared using nanofabrication techniques and can be studied using various experimental and simulation techniques. The supervisor will introduce the students to the relevant topics
The students will learn about the scientific topic itself, e.g., related to research considered in the excellence cluster "nanosystems initiative munich (NIM)" or the transregional research center TRR80 "From electronic correlations to functionality". Further, the students will learn about the oral presentation of a technical subject in a concise manner including the creation of relevant slides, the handling of modern presentation techniques and ad hoc scientific discussions. Talks will be given in English.
