39th IFF Spring School

Soft Matter – From Synthetic to Biological Materials

03 - 14 March 2008 . Jülich . Germany



The IFF Spring School 2009 will address the fundamentals and new developments in spintronics on a graduate student level. The lectures will first build a basis for the understanding of the major fundamental phenomena and aspects in magnetism and spin-dependent transport, including the theoretical framework for a quantitative description. The School will then advance to contemporary aspects of spin transfer processes at interfaces and in nanostructures down to the quantum level. Exchange interactions and spin effects in highly correlated materials are another important topic. Finally, we will also discuss current and future technological applications of spintronic concepts.


The topics of the lectures cover:

  • Scattering Techniques
  • Single Molecule Techniques
  • Equilibrium- and Non-equilibrium
  • Statistical Physics
  • Microfluidics
  • Computer Simulations
  • Synthesis
  • Self-Organisation
  • Flow Properties and Rheology
  • Biomechanics
  • Macromolecules and Colloids
  • Membranes and Interfaces
  • Biomimetic Systems
  • Glasses and Gels
