Nanophysics theory

Starting from the beginning of 2018 seminars are arranged every week on Tuesday at 14:30-15:30. We encourage researchers to present theoretical or experimental results in a wide variety of topics related to condensed matter physics, high-energy physics and chemistry. The core of the speakers are from the local nanophysics theory groups. Additionally, we look for possibilities to deepen the collaboration between the theoretical scientists and we are also happy to provide theory support for experimentalists, but we encourage the speakers to plan their talks by taking into account that most of the audience has a background in theoretical nanophysics. Anyone interested in the topics is warmly welcome to listen the talks or to present his/her own research! (The seminars can optionally be longer than one hour. If you plan to give a longer talk please mention it in the abstract.)

If you want to give a talk please contact Mikhail Silaev. If you want to get email reminders about the seminars please join the nanophys_theo_sem group in korppi.
