  • Overview

    The weeklong virtual summer school will feature plenary talks from experts in the field of condensed matter physics.

    The next User Summer School will take place July 2021, and we are currently working on the agenda. Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates.

    This experience is designed to provide a “technique toolkit” to early career scientists that includes:

    • Noise types and theory; noise suppression techniques
    • Transport techniques
    • Magnetometry: AC, torque, vibrating sample magnetometer, SQUID
    • Heat capacity measurements
    • Magneto-optics
    • Infrared and terahertz spectroscopy
    • Ultrasound spectroscopy
    • High-pressure methods
    • NMR techniques for chemistry, biology and condensed matter
    • Electron paramagnetic resonance (electron spin resonance)
    • Cryogenic techniques
    • Measurements at ultra-low temperatures
    • The nuts and bolts of data acquisition
