IEEE Magnetic Frontiers: Topological Insulators, Nancy, France on 18-21 September 2017
IEEE Magnetic Frontiers is the premier topical conference on emerging aspects of fundamental and applied magnetism. The forum provides 6 plenary and 15 invited talks delivered by key researchers in the field as well as oral and poster presentations. As there will be a small number of participants (about 110 people), the conference provides a unique environment for researchers to communicate and discuss the latest developments in magnetism with the leading scientists. Conference-related papers will be published in IEEE Magnetics Letters.
The first conference in the series is related to the emerging topic of Topological Insulators –unique electronic materials that additionally to a bulk band gap like in an ordinary insulator have protected conducting states on their edge or surface that are possible due to the combination of spin-orbit interactions and time-reversal symmetry. The conference will cover the following topics:
- Materials and interface design
- Characterisation technics
- Electronic transport in topological materials
- Theory and modelling of topological materials
- Prospective for applications
PLENARY SPEAKERS (all Confirmed) : Prof. Matthias Bode, Universität Würzburg; Prof. Albert Fert, Université Paris Sud (Nobel Prize in Physics 2007) ; Prof. Ingrid Mertig, Martin Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg ; Prof. Nitin Samarth, Penn State University ; Prof. Zhi Xun Shen, Stanford University ; Prof. Qi-Kun Xue, Tsinghua University
