12th WIEN2k WORKSHOP

This WIEN workshop deals with density functional (DFT) calculations of solids using the (full-potential) Augmented Plane Wave plus Local Orbitals (APW+lo) method as embodied in the WIEN2k code (http://www.wien2k.at).

A detailed program of this workshop is available at www.wien2k.at/events/ws2006/prog.html

2nd CHIRALTEM WORKSHOP

The CHIRALTEM collaboration (http://www.chiraltem.physics.at) has recently demonstrated that circular dichroism can be measured with EELS in a TEM, contrary to common belief. This new technique opens the way to the study of site and element specific magnetic moments in the TEM, thus extending to the nanoscale the well established XMCD or PEEM applied on a synchrotron.

During the workshop the know-how accumulated in the last two years by the international collaboration will be disseminated to the interested community. A limited number of grants (max. € 300.- ) is available for young researchers (< 35 years). Applications by sending an email to dftem@physics.at including a cover letter and a CV are invited.
No more grants available
