Plenary Tutorials

This tutorial session, on Wednesday 24 August, aims to cover a diverse range of spintronic applications. It is targeted at students and early career researchers with an interest in the area and those who wish to know more. Along with extended question sessions at the end of each talk there will be coffee/tea provided and a drinks reception at the end in order to promote open discussion. This session has been provided to JEMS by the Graduate School of Excellence “Materials Science in Manz” (MAINZ). The aim of the body is graduate training through excellence in research.
