We thank Binghai Yan from Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden for being our guest and giving a talk about feasibility of the quantum anomalous Hall effect in the near-room-temperature regions.
We had the pleasure to welcome Thierry Valet on February 11 and 12, which gave him the chance to accustom himself with German Carnival traditions. He was lucky not to wear a tie on Weiberfassnacht (Women's Carnival Day) when he had a meeting with Jairo Sinova and Matthias Kläui. Mr Valet is known for the Valet-Fert Model on giant magnetoresistance in CPP geometry and its application in spin engineering.
It was a great pleasure to host Prof. Dr. Vitalii Dugaev from Rzeszów University of Technology. In his talk he discussed the contribution of edge scattering to the conductance of grapheme nanoribbons and nanoflakes using the Boltzmann equation approach.
The INSPIRE Group has the pleasure to welcome Prof. Helen Gomonay from the National Technical University of Ukraine. She has done eminent research on AFM spintronics and will give an introductory lecture entitled "Spintronics with antiferromagnets: spinning of spin".
