As with previous editions of ESM, the 2018 School aims at providing a thorough insight into magnetism through a broad series of fundamental lectures, and to address a specific topic of current interest in more detail. We intend to cover modern aspects overlapping a broad series of fundamental lectures on one side, and the latest insights into up-to-date aspects of magnetism on the other side.
The topic chosen for the 2018 School is: “Magnetism by Light”. This covers a wide range of fundamental phenomena deeply rooted in condensed matter physics, specific instrumentation and opportunities for applications. Focused lectures will cover ultrafast light-induced magnetization processes, magnetoplasmonics, microwave magnetism, magneto-optics, spectroscopic and synchrotron-based techniques etc.
