Online SPICE-SPIN+X Seminars

Spice & SPIN+X Banner



Dear colleagues, in a time of physical distancing, it is more important than ever to continue disseminating science. Please join us on a weekly on-line seminar on spintronics and related areas of research.

This summer, the INSPIRE group (within SPICE) has organised the seminar on-line in a SPICE-SPIN+X partnership.
