Workshop within the NordForsk Nanospintronics Network
25 physicists will attend the 5th annual meeting on Öland, June 12–14.
25 physicists associated with the network and invited from outside will participate in the event. Highlights of the workshop will be studies of individual magnetic impurities in semiconductors, which could lead to the realization of a novel class of versatile spin transistors consisting of one magnetic atom, new theoretical approaches studying the time evolutions of individual atomic spins, and the recent detection of a special type of “quasi-particles” known as Majorana fermions in semiconductor nanowires attached to superconducting leads.

The workshop concludes the activities of the nanospintronics network for this semester. The activities have also included research collaborations and a new Ph.D. course on quantum transport in nanostructures developed at Linnaeus University and available to all the students of the network.
