Kick-off Conference on Pressure Effects on Materials

Sunday, August 22, 2010 - 13:30 to Saturday, August 28, 2010 - 13:30
Event Type: 

Pressure is a variable that plays a key role in a large variety of phenomena that range from large scale effects at the interior of planets to small energy scale properties such as quantum critical behavior and a diversity of exotic phase transitions in, for instance, strongly correlated electron materials. With this kick-off conference we would like to bring together scientists working in this field and to provide a forum for intense discussion and examination of the most advanced aspects of the use of high pressure for the investigation of these phenomena. The conference should further help to enhance the exchange between theoreticians and experimentalists and sets the frame for possible long-term workshops.
