Welcome to the Homepage of the
International Collaborative Research Centre TRR 160:

Coherent manipulation of interacting spin excitations in tailored semiconductors



The group Experimentelle Physik VI at TU Dortmund University lead by Prof. Mirko Cinchetti organizes the ECMolS2020, which is the “European Conference on Molecular Spintronics 2020” that will be held in Dortmund from 29th September to 2nd October 2020.

The website of the conference is: www.ecmols2020.tu-dortmund.de

ECMolS is a series of conferences, whose previous editions took place in Bologna (2016) and in Peniscola (2018). The 2020 edition, supported by the TRR 160, has the goal to gather the community working in the field of molecular spintronics, that comprises the following research areas: organic spintronics, molecular electronics, molecular magnetism and molecular quantum technologies. In addition to these traditional topics, the third edition of ECMolS will be opened also to scientists investigating 2D materials, with special focus on proximity effects at the interface between two material layers.

DONC 2020

From October 6th to 8th 2020, we will organize a workshop on nanocrystal research, titled:

DONC (Dortmund Nanocrystals) 2020
Nanocrystals: From Scaling Laws to Applications

It will bring together many pioneers of nanocrystal research, also to mark the 70th birthday of Alexander Efros. They will give invited talks covering the history of nanocrystal research starting from basic studies up to the latest developments including technological applications. This will be an excellent opportunity for early stage researchers to get an overview of the emerging field, in addition to presenting their own research to pioneers of the field.

On purpose, the registration fee will be hold low to facilitate participation.

Opening of new bilateral collaboration center Sheffield – Dortmund

On 26th of September a high-ranked delegation from the Physics Department of the University of Sheffield visited Dortmund for an informal opening of the new bilateral cooperation center titled “LIGHT-MATTER INTERACTIONS AND QUANTUM PHOTONICS IN NANO-SCALE SEMICONDUCTOR STRUCTURES AND DEVICES”. The project will run for 4.5 years and has a volume of 1.6 Million Pounds provided by EPSRC. The center will enhance on both side the facilities for sample fabrication and spectroscopic studies.
