Advanced Seminar WS 20/21
Introduction to state-of-the-art experiments in condensed matter physics
Mo. 14:00-15:00 h at the II. Physikalisches Institut, University of Cologne.
The aim of this advanced seminar is to give an introduction to different state-of-the-art experimental techniques that are currently used in modern condensed matter research. Depending on your interests the discussed topics range from different in-house laboratory measurement setups to specialized techniques that are offered in various large-scale facilities all over the word. The idea is that each talk should first introduce some kind(s) of experimental methods and explain their technical realization. Then some example should be presented where these experimental techniques have been used to give new insights in current condensed matter research.
Possible subjects of the seminar talks could be about
- atomic manipulation with the Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM)
- low-temperature thermodynamic and transport studies
- broadband dielectric spectroscopy
- time-dependent pump-probe measurements
- high-field studies in pulsed magnetic fields
- Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy (ARPES)
- Resonant Inelastic X-ray Sacttering (RIXS)
- neutron scattering with the upcoming European Spallation Source (ESS)
Depending on the further development concerning the spread of the Corona virus, the Advanced Seminar talks are given either via online video conferences or in presence in the Seminar Room 202 of the II. Physikalisches Institut. End of October end or beginning of November there will be an organisational meeting.
