Epitaxial ultra-thin films oxides on Fe What happens when a low dimensional oxide grows on a highly reactive metal substrate?
Speaker:Prof. Lamberto Duó (Department of Physics, Politecnico di Milano/Italy)
Abstract:The investigation of oxide films with a thickness of a few nanometers or below grown on another substrate is a scientific topic that has recently attracted a huge amount of experimental and theoretical research work. Indeed, many physical phenomena arising in metal-oxide heterostructures have been reported, spanning from magnetic instabilities, charge transfer from metallic substrate, magnetoelectric coupling in multiferroic layered systems, tunneling-induced spin filtering, just to name few. All these phenomena are intimately connected with the structure and the chemistry of the interfacial oxide/metal region. In order to control and to some extent engineer the functionalities of these heterostructures, it is crucial to have a full understanding of the basic mechanisms governing the formation of the oxide/metal interface. In this contribution I will focus on some of the recent advance

Non-chaotic vacuum singularities without symmetries?
Speaker:Paul Klinger (Vienna)
Abstract:We construct a class of vacuum space-times without Killing vectors and with "asymptotically velocity dominated" singularities.
