SCHOOL ON
LOW DIMENSIONAL NANOSCOPIC PHYSICS 

January 28    -   February 9, 2008

The main aim of the school is to teach basic ideas in the field of low-dimensional nanoelectronics to students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty members in the country, in order to initiate and further research in this area.

 Lecturers and their topics : 
 N. Andrei : Kondo effect in quantum dots  

 (Rutgers University, U.S.A)
 J. von Delft: Bosonisation and Luttinger liquids  
 (University of Munich, Germany)
 J. Eisenstein : Quantum Hall effect and more  

 (Caltech, U. S. A)
 Y. Gefen : Quantum dots 
 (Weizmann Institute, Israel)
 J. K. Jain : Composite fermion theory  
 (Penn State University, U.S.A)
 J. Koenig : Spin transport 
 (Ruhr University, Germany)
 L. Levitov : Noise in nanoelectronic systems 
 (MIT, U. S. A)
 A. Mirlin : Quantum transport in disordered systems 
 (Karlsruhe University, Germany)
 G. Montambaux : Interference and interaction effects in nanoelectronic systems 
 (University of Paris, France)
 A. Shnirman : Decoherence in nanoscale devices 
 (University of Innsbruck, Austria )

Applications are invited for participation in the school from students working for their PhD degrees or from post-doctoral fellows/junior faculty members working in mesoscopic physics or with an interest in mesoscopic physics. Exceptionally motivated Master's students will also be considered. Selected applicants will receive support for travel (III/II A.C./II by train) and full board and lodging.  Please send (in plain text or pdf format) your academic qualifications, research experience and list of publications to cmp2008@mri.ernet.in by October 15, 2007. Students should also arrange for at least one letter of recommendation to be sent to the same address.
