During the last couple of years a wealth of novel phenomena concerning spins in condensed matter have been revealed, which promise application in the emerging fields of spin electronics and quantum information technologies. These topics will be addressed by the school, with special emphasis on coherent control of few or even individual spins in nanostructures. The aim is to provide PhD students but also Master/Diplom students and young postdocs an overview of the field. Generation, manipulation and detection of spins may be achieved by electric transport, by optical means, or by combination of the two approaches. Internationally leading scientists have agreed to come to Bad Honnef and give tutorial lectures, introducing the basic concepts, describing major research advancements and opening perspectives for this attractive field of research.
Participants are strongly encouraged to present their research work at a poster session.
