Theme 2010 - Magnetic Phenomena

Magnetic phenomena are not only fascinating research topics, but also of key importance to a modern society. Magnetic phenomena and the understanding of these are basis for technologies with applications in information technology, energy conversion, diagnostics, sensors and actuators etc.  

The school will introduce magnetism and strongly correlated electron systems and show how large scale facilities providing beams of photons, muons, and neutrons are used to study magnetic phenomena.  

It is the second time that the PSI Summer School offers a twofold educational program with the traditional school in Zuoz followed by hands on training at the PSI Facilities in Villigen. The practical training will be available for approximately 20 students. The transfer from Zuoz to Villigen will take place on Friday August 13, 2010.
