The goal of basic research is to increase the knowledge about fundamental principles and to search for new phenomena. However, in many (mostly unpredicted) cases, these findings lead to important technological applications. In this seminar, students will search and present such examples, which arose from intriguing findings of modern physics mainly based on solid state research. The talk should cover the physical concepts, the circumstances of the discovery of the particular effect and its way to application.
The seminar will take place on Tuesdays 16-18 in seminar room E3 (1.4.31).
