"3rd International Symposium on Vortex Dynamics"


29. November - 2. December 2009
Hamburg, Germany

This symposium will take place Nov. 29 - Dec. 2 in Hamburg, Germany, and is funded by the Collaborative Research Center (Sonderforschungsbereich) 668 "Magnetism from Single Atoms to Nanostructures" and by the LEXI-Cluster "Nano-Spintronics. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is well-known for its rich history as a center of trade and travel. The University of Hamburg has adopted this tradition and calls itself "The Gateway to the World of Science". It has a long history of research in magnetism, and particularly magnetic vortex dynamics. In 1943, Otto Stern received the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the magnetic moment of the proton here in Hamburg some ten years earlier, and in 1968, Werner Döring's work on point singularities helped to establish the magnetic vortex as a research topic.

Scientific Scope

The purpose of this international symposium is to strengthen the scientific community that focuses its research on the dynamics of magnetic vortices in confined structures, micro- and nanoelements and nanowires) by bringing together experts in this field that share their latest research results with each other. By conjoining experimental, analytical, and simulational expertise, the symposium will facilitate the dissemination of knowledge as well as identify the remaining challenges in the field, thus helping to establish vortex dynamics as a research topic within the magnetic community.
