Responsible coordinator of the module PH1437 is Elena Hassinger.

Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions

Content

Seminar talks by students on current topics in the field of research on Quantum Matter in Extreme Conditions.

The talks will be organized in a block. The precise date will be fixed at the first meeting. The excursion to Dresden is primarily open to participants of this seminar as the subjects are closely related.

At the beginning of the semester, the students will learn effective presentation skills useful for their talks.

Possible subjects are:

Josephson Effect and SQUIDs

The quantum metrological triangle

Quantum oscillations

High magnetic fields

High pressure techniques

Spin-Triplett Superconductivity

 

Learning Outcome

After successful participation in the module the student can use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.

They have learned about recent topics in the field of research.
