III INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP
ON POINT-CONTACT SPECTROSCOPY
8 - 12 September 2014
with great pleasure we would like to inform you that
you are invited
to participate in the
The Conference is devoted to the 40th anniversary of
the invention of point-contact spectroscopy method by Full Member of NAS of Ukraine prof.
I. K. Yanson in
ILTPE of NAS of Ukraine.
The First International Conference on Point-Contact Spectroscopy was held in ILTPE in 1991. This caused a lot of interest among the scientists of the Ukraine and many other countries. It was attended by over 100 scientists from Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Armenia, France, Netherlands, Slovakia, USA, Germany, Switzerland, Israel and Japan. Two special issues of the Soviet Journal of Low Temperature Physics with the articles of participants were published in 1992 after the Conference.
The scientific goal of the workshop is the discussion of the recent advances from the progress in this field of science and the determination promising areas which can give the access to nanotechnology.
The conference will address the traditional problems of PCS of electron-boson interaction in the new and topical compounds, the research of the superconductors: rare-earth nickelborocarbides, magnesium diboride, high-temperature and iron-based superconductors by Andreev reflection spectroscopy, the relaxation and non-stationary processes in point contacts under the high-frequency and laser irradiation, the nonlinear and non-stationary effects in the conductivity of ferromagnetic nanocontacts due to transfer of spin momentum, the quantum effects in nanostructures and so on.
• PC spectroscopy of quasiparticle excitations
• Thermal effects in microscopic constrictions
• Two-level systems in metallic PCs
• normal metals, alloys, intermetallic compounds
• conventional superconductors and HTSC
• heavy fermions and mixed valence compounds
• topological superconductors
The Workshop language is English.
Forms of participation are oral (25 min) and poster (A0 format) presentations.
Book of abstracts will be published before the Workshop.
Besides, a special issue of the Journal "Low Temperature Physics" (LTP) with the selected articles of participants will be published just after the Workshop.
Conference Venue: Ukraine, Kharkiv 61103, 47 Lenin Ave., B.Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering of NAS of Ukraine.
