The first International Baltic School of Solid-state Physics and Magnetism welcomes students from Moscow State University
On August 11-18, IKBFU's Functional Nanomaterials research and educational centre will hold the first International Baltic School of Solid-state Physics and Magnetism. 73 people from 20 Russian universities (Moscow State University, Moscow State University of Steel and Alloys, IKBFU), as well as 3 people from Kazakhstan, expressed willingness to participate. The largest delegation is from Moscow State University - 24 students from the country's major university are coming to IKBFU.
The central objective of the school is to focus on the topical issues of solid-state physics and magnetism through introducing the participants to the promising areas of research and addressing the problems of modern methods of setting and studying the properties of new materials.
Solid-state physics and magnetism are among the basic courses of the university programme. At the same time, as the prefix nano- is added, solid-state physics and magnetism become a dynamically developing and promising scientific field. The creation of new materials with tailored properties, the manufacturing of micro and nano-sized products and components, the development of new efficient technologies and the loss enhancement in the use of those introduced earlier are just a few positions on the list of urgent tasks faced by physicist today. Metallurgy, electronics and many other industries and sciences are linked to solid-state physics and apply the developments of laboratories. The school will feature lectures by professors from universities of Russia, CIS countries, Europe, and the USA, namely, Prof. Alexander Granovsky (Moscow State University, Russia), Prof. Andrei Fedyanin (Moscow State University, Russia), Prof. Manuel Vázquez (Institute of Materials Science, Madrid, Spain), Prof. Michael Farle (University of Duisburg-Essen, Duisburg and Essen, Germany), Prof. Pyotr Gaiduk (Belarusian State University, Minsk, Belarus), Anatoly Snegirev (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, Grenoble, France), Olga Griffith (University of Arizona, Tucson, the USA), and many others.
The students will attend presentations of eminent scholars and hear poster presentation and reports of young scientists.
