Scientific Program in doc

 

The main topics:
 

1. PC spectroscopy of quasiparticle excitations
2. Andreev-reflection spectroscopy

3. Thermal effects in microscopic constrictions
4. High-frequency and the noise PCS
5. PCS in high magnetic fields
6. Kondo-effect in metallic contacts

7. Two-level systems in metallic PCs

 

Materials:

normal metals, alloys, intermetallic compounds

conventional superconductors and HTSC

heavy fermions and mixed valence compounds

topological superconductors
 

Related topics:
scanning tunneling spectroscopy
quantum ballistic transport in two-dimensional constrictions
single-atomic contacts


NB: Special session devoted to investigation of iron-based superconductors

by different spectroscopic methods like STM, ARPES, Raman, neutron etc is planned.

 

The Workshop language is English.
 

Forms of participation are oral and posters 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.

 

Young Scientist Prize will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentation.
