6-9 Carlton House Terrace
London, England

Organised by Professor Stuart Parkin FRS, Professor Gabriel Aeppli and Professor Bryan Hickey

Recent advances in generating, manipulating and detecting spin-polarized electrons promise entirely new classes of spin based sensor, memory and logic devices, generally referred to as the field of spintronics.

These advances are based on recent fundamental discoveries involving spin polarized current in novel nano-materials, including, giant tunnelling magnetoresistance, the spin Hall effect, and the excitation of magnetization via the transfer of spin angular momentum from spin polarized current.

Confirmed speakers are:

Professor Ian Appelbaum, Professor David Awschalom, Professor Sergei Demokritov, Professor Albert Fert, Professor Claudia Felser, Professor Bert Koopmans, Professor Daniel Loss, Professor Hideo Ohno, Professor Stuart Parkin FRS, Professor Dan Ralph, Professor Theo Rasing, Professor Yeong-Ah Soh Professor Yoshishige Suzuki, Professor Yoshi Tokura and Professor Shoucheng Zhang.

The discussion meeting runs from 9am to 5pm on each day. The registration desk will open at 8.30am on each day.
