Recent Advances in Spectroscopy: Experiment and Theory

4-5 April 2017, Kraków, Poland


WG2-WG5 workshop Abstract Book -- see here

The workshop Recent Advances in Spectroscopy: Experiment and Theory scheduled for April 4-5th, 2017 at the University of Science and Technology in Krakow, will focus on recent developments and novel aspects of absorption and electron spectroscopies, presenting experimental and theoretical progress in selected topics. The aim of the workshop is to gather the experimental and theoretical communities working on different fields of electronic structure and spectroscopy to promote a stronger exchange and dialogue, in promising and still not explored directions.



The workshop will include specific sessions addressing topics like:

  • Topological insulators and Weyl semimetals
  • Organic materials and interfaces
  • Nanostructured materials
  • Correlated materials and magnetism
  • Multiferroics
  • Electronic transport and role of defects
  • Graphene

Poland is a country with more than thousand years of recorded history, rich and varied, and first to free itself from communist domination in 1989. Since the fall of communism the country has undergone rapid economic and social changes and the process still continues.

Kraków, as the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland is located in the southern part of Poland in the Lesser Poland region. The history of the city dates back to the 7th century. Since the Middle Ages Kraków had been the capital of the Polish state until the 17th century and has kept the character of a spiritual capital till the present day.

Kraków is one of the places in the world which have been included in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. The architectural complex of the Old Town has survived all the cataclysms of the past and preserved the same, unchanged layout since the Middle Ages. The Old Town together with the Wieliczka Salt Mine have been recognized as some of the most valuable architectural treasures of the world. There are over 300 town-houses and 58 churches and palaces, all considered historical monuments just within the old center of Kraków and that is just a small part of all the monuments of this city.
