Ionel Tifrea will be cohosting an international workshop this coming July in Brasov, Romania on the "Spin and charge properties of low-dimensional systems."


This is a second advanced workshop in the series held in Romania and will again feature an international gathering of renowned experts to present the basic science of nanosystems including single-quantum dynamics and coherence of nanowires and quantum dots, as well as the nanoscale magnetic properties of semiconductors. 

Brasov is a beautiful historic town in southern Transylvania and during the Middle Ages was the largest Saxon village in Transylvania surrounded by a protective wall with 28 towers and 7 bastions. Nearby attractions include Bran Castle, popularly known as "Dracula's Castle," along with a great number of 14th century Saxon fortified churches, and some of the highest Carpathian-mountain peaks in Romania.

Ionel and the other organizers expect to have some 100 attendees from around the globe while looking to support the participation of more junior scientists. Ionel has been working to take some of his students in the department with him to the workshop.
