612. WE-Heraeus-Seminar

on the topic

Electrons and phonons: Interfaces and interactions


The seminar will take place between April 3rd and 6th, 2016, in the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany.

The topics to be addressed by the seminar are interaction between electronic and phononic system, influence of interfaces and surfaces on this interaction and the resulting consequences for electrical and thermal transport phenomena.

This series of seminars is dedicated to a specialized public and is restricted to 70 participants among which there are around 15 invited speakers and several contributed speakers, as well as poster presentations. Emphasis is set on giving young investigators at the PhD or PostDoc level the opportunity to participate.

  • Dr. Gabi Schierning, Leibniz-Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden
  • Prof. Kornelius Nielsch, Leibniz-Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden
  • Dr. Raphael Hermann, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
  • Prof. Christian Jooß, University of Göttingen


Contact:  Dr. Gabi Schierning
