Complex Oxide Heterostructures Mini-Workshop

The goal of this one-day online workshop is to bring together the Swiss researchers working on thin films, heterostructures and devices from complex oxides. In particular, it is aimed at the PhD students and Postdocs to provide them with an opportunity to present and discuss their work. Interested researchers from abroad are equally welcome.

Besides the invited speakers listed below, there will be several contributed talks and an extended poster session.

Invited Speakers
Manuel Bibes (CNRS Thales, Paris, F)
Hans Boschker (MPI-FKF, Stuttgart, D)
Julia Mundy (Harvard University, US)
Victor Pardo (Universidad Santiago de Compostela, E)
Pablo Zubko (University College London, UK)
