El Escorial, 10-15 May 2015

The purpose of the Workshop is to promote international collaboration and exchange of ideas in the field of vortex physics. This time the workshop will take place in El Escorial, in the premises of the Centro Maria Cristina. Local organizers belong to the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and the Universidad Complutense in Madrid.

Topics include:

  • Vortex pinning and phase diagrams; single and multicomponent superconductors
  • Vortex dynamics: Dynamic phase diagram and single vortex motion
  • Materials for applications: tapes and wires
  • Vortex imaging in real and reciprocal space: Scanning microscopies,  neutron and muon scattering
  • 2D Vortex lattices
  • Devices for high frequency radiation and detection. SQUIDs and junctions
  •  Materials: pnictides, cuprates, heavy fermions, chalcogenides, etc.
  • Irradiation and nanostructuring for vortex pinning
  • Magnetic skyrmions: Lattices and dynamics
  • 2D films and layered materials. Superconductor to insulator transitions. Electric field induced superconductivity.
  • Vortices in topological and in strongly correlated electron superconductors
  • Vortices in superconducting/ferromagnetic hybrids
  • Thermal and disorder induced transitions
