UPDATE : Transition metal compounds, Belux2 - 17-18 November 2016 - imec Belgium

Registration for the workshop is still open: Many of imec's large industrial IDM partners and equipment suppliers have registered for this workshop - an excellent opportunity to meet the experts in this field!

Imec and the COST action HERALD will host a workshop dedicated to Transition metal compounds driving technological advancement. The Belux2 workshop will take place at imec in Leuven, Belgium on 17-18 November 2016.

 This 2 half-day workshop will provide an excellent opportunity to spark multidisciplinary discussions regarding the modeling, deposition and characterization of novel transition metal compounds for next generation technologies.

The program will consist of Presentations by invited speakers.
Prof. Atsufumi Hirohata (University of York, UK) - Heusler Alloy Films for Spintronic Devices
Dr. Stanislav Chadov (Max Planck, Germany) - Room-temperature tetragonal noncollinear antiferromagnet: Pt2MnGa
