Workshop on Superconducting Spintronics


Workshop on Superconducting Spintronics

 Grenoble, Wednesday, October 14th 2015

 Amphithéâtre de la Maison des Magistères (CNRS campus)

sponsored by CPTGA, Nanosciences Fondation and LPMMC


Superconducting spintronics has emerged in the last decade as a promising field that seeks to open a new dimension for nanoelectronics by utilizing the internal spin structure of the superconducting Cooper pair as a new degree of freedom. Currently, the discipline finds itself at the crossroads for developing first-generation devices.

This workshop aims to bring together specialists in superconducting nanostructures, magnetic materials, and spintronics to provide informal exchange of ideas, necessary for development of this new direction.

Participation to the workshop is free. However, participants from outside the CNRS campus have to register before the 12th of October by sending an email to Claudine Rabatel.
