International School and Workshop on Electronic Crystals ECRYS-2017

Tue, April 11, 2017

August 21 - September 2, 2017

Location: Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse, Corse, France.

ECRYS-2017 continues the series of tri-annual conferences ECRYS on Electronic Crystals, which were organized since 1993 in France. The international meeting will host about 100 scientists and PhD students. Each day, the program will integrate the advanced research school and the leading edge scientific conference.  The axes of the ECRYS integrate various areas in science of electronic aggregation in solids. Materials: synthetic low-dimensional systems build from transition metals, oxides, chalcogenides, etc; organic conductors; artificial atomic structures, charged patterns in soft- and bio-matters, cold trapped ions; electronic ferroelectrics. Effects: Cooperative electronic states like density waves, charge order and ferroelectricity, Peierls- Mott- and excitonic insulators; formations of patterns, stripes, solitons and their lattices; resulting collective nonlinear and non-stationary effects; states switching and dynamical phase transitions; weak crystallization. Methods: nano-scale studies and manipulations by STM, STS and AFM; MBE- and FIB- fabricated nanostructures;  high magnetic and electric fields; femto-second optical quenches and tera-Hertz pulses; time-sliced ARPES, X-ray and electron diffraction. Theory: mathematics of nonlinear and non-stationary processes; analytical and numerical techniques for many-body static and dynamical states.
