• Scientific scope

    The Magnetism Matters workshop aims at highlighting recent achievements and discoveries based on the application of neutron scattering techniques to materials with intriguing magnetic properties. Experimental studies which add a piece to the understanding of the microscopic origin of phenomena like e.g. multiferroicity or superconductivity play a key role in the development of functional materials, but, nevertheless, quantum and frustrated magnetism - being at the heart of fundamental science - may one day deliver the concepts of future applications.
    The workshop is divided into five sessions of 2h each, which cover the fields of Quantum magnetism, Frustrated magnetism, Multiferroics & Spin-orbit/spin-lattice coupled phenomena, Superconductivity & Low-dimensional magnetism and Skyrmions & Exotic States.
    We are happy to welcome you at the World Trade Center in Grenoble, from the 10th to the 12th of October 2018.
