Fundamental notions of solid-state physics (superconductivity, ferroelectricity, magnetism, first-principles calculations, optics, correlations, etc) will be developped. The school will also give an extended overview of the field, covering topics such as key advanced characterization and computational techniques, as well as multiferroics, oxide interfaces, domain walls or topogically insulating oxides. Oxide-based devices for electronics, spintronics, optics and other fields will also be presented in details.


  • Peter Grünberg, an inspiration for many magnetic ICMABers: from spinwaves to GMR

    "Peter Grünberg was one of the first physicists to understand the potential of nascent nanotechnologies for fundamental research. He discovered giant magnetoresistance, or GMR: a large change in electrical resistance induced by a small magnetic field in stacks of ultrathin magnetic and non-magnetic layers." says Albert Fert* in Peter Grünberg's Obituary in Nature.

    According to a working document of the European Commission (EC) of June 7, the next scientific EU's 2021-27 R&D programme (Horizon Europe) will not cover the publication fees for articles to be publised in hybrid open-access journals (those journals that are neither subscription-only nor fully open, instead offering authors both publishing options after paying the article processing charges (APCs) for open-acess).
