Summer School, INL,
Braga, Portugal, September 2015

 

The first part of this meeting was the Summer School followed by the management team reviewing the project's progress to date.  Our fellows then stayed in Braga to attend their network training.

The SpinIcur summer school 2015 was held during September 7 – 11 in Braga, Portugal at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) as part of the European project "SpinIcur". The summer school was attended by 46 students and 22 invited speakers and partners. Delegates from 22 different countries attended the summer school representing 37 different institutes from Europe, Americas and Asia.  The lectures covered a broad range of topics in applied research in spintronics, including the spin-Hall effect and magnetic domain walls, spin-transfer torque MRAM, magnonics and spin waves, the spin Seebeck effect and spin caloritronics and nanooscillators. In addition, the students had the opportunity to present their work totheir peers and the speakers, either through an oral presentation or a poster presentation. Prof. Russel Cowburn and Brad Engel inspired the students with their insight in how to start a company "From spin to spin-off".

2nd Network Meeting, University of Cambridge,
Cambridge, UK, September 2014

 

In addition to the management meeting and training, the 2nd network meeting included the important mid term review (MTR) meeting of the SpinIcur project.

The first part of this meeting was the management meeting in which the fellows took part in the science session followed by the management team reviewing the project's progress to date.

The MTR meeting gathered the fellows, partners, a representative from the European Commission (Isabelle Aires Pinto) and an external reviewer (Dr Olga Kazakova). This meeting was a opportunity to review the first 22 months of the network. During this meeting our network partners introduced themselves, the coordinator presented the project progress to date, each fellow give a 9 minute presentation, and finally the REA representative had the opportunity to talk direct with the fellows and feedback to the project coordinator.  The initial feedback from REA confirmed that the project is on track with no major issues.

Our fellows then stayed in Cambridge to attend their network training.

Kick-off & ITOA, University of Leeds,
Leeds, UK, September 2013

 

On behalf of the Leeds team our sincere thanks to everyone for taking part and for the contributions you all made to an enjoyable and stimulating meeting. During the ITOA the E(S)Rs were introduced to the network and the partners and undertook team building activities to foster an espirit de corps.

INL

International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (www.inl.int) is the first fully international research organization in Europe in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology and was established by Portugal and Spain. INL research activities are focused on 4 topics : nanomedicine; environment monitoring, security, and food quality control; nanoelectronics (beyond CMOS); nano-machines and nanomanipulation.

 

Delft

The Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft aims to be a quality-driven, intellectually stimulating institute with a broad scope of research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The emphasis in our research, which ranges from single-molecule biophysics to quantum information processing of nanoscale devices, is on novel concepts and fundamental breakthroughs. The Institute has state-of-the-art general facilities, most notably for nanofabrication in the Kavli Nanolab Delft. The Kavli Institute of NanoScience consists of two departments, both also part of the Faculty of Applied Sciences at Delft University of Technology: The Department of Quantum Nanoscience, and the Department of Bionanoscience. The Institute involves about 40 scientific faculty members and about 250 people in total.

IBM

IBM Research - Zurich is the European branch of IBM Research, has approximately 300 employees and does scientific and industrial research in diverse fields related to computing, ranging from hardware to software and data analytics. The laboratory has been a leader in applied and basic research for many years, highlighted by two Nobel prizes in physics. Within the "Physics of Nanoscale Systems" group, led by Dr. Rolf Allenspach, experiments are being done in the areas of atomic/molecular manipulation, nanopatterning, and spintronics/nanomagnetism. Within the spintronics/nanomagnetism team, we investigate magnetic domains and domain walls under the influence of field and current by high-resolution imaging and explore spins in semiconductor structures by ultrafast magneto-optical methods.
