sfb Summer School 2007
Magnetic Heterostructures and Nanomagnetism
uppsala

jointly organized by the Collaborative Research Center:
Magnetic Heterostructures (SFB 491), Bochum-Duisburg, Germany
and the
Fundamental Research and Applications of Magnetism (FRAM), University of Uppsala,Sweden
Time: July 8 - 13, 2007
Location: Haus Villigst, Schwerte, Germany

About the summer school
The purpose of the summer school is to inform and train advanced master and PhD students in the fundamentals of nanomagnetism. Up-to-date knowledge of the most recent developments in the field will be provided by internationally renown experts in this field.
Lectures for download
The lecturer have kindly provided their pdf - files for download and private use. For any other use, in particular the reproduction of figures, the permission of the author is kindly requested.

Questions to the Lectures
All lecturers have provided questions to their lectures. The total number of Questions is 33 including 3 challenging questions from Professor Kleemann. In order to receive three credit points from your institution, you should correctly answer 1/3 (=11) of the questions. For 5 credit points, you should have 2/3 (=22) of questions correctly answered. A bonus of one credit point is given to those, who can solve the three challenging questions of Prof. Kleemann.

Students from Sweden should contact Prof. Hjövarsson or Prof. Oppeneer for handing in their answers and for corrections, all others should contact Dr. Petracic or Prof. Zabel in Bochum.
