Lecturer: Dr. Angelo DiBarnardo Title:Superspintronics: from its origin to the first oxide devices. Abstract: The interaction between materials with radically different properties can lead to the emergence of tantalising physical phenomena. A classic example of such an interaction is that occurring at a superconductor/ferromagnet (S/F) interface, where unconventional – odd frequency spin-triplet – superconducting states can arise which support a net spin- polarization [1]. Spin-triplet superconducting states have raised great interest for the

Flat bands, scanning tunneling microscopy, and the violation of time-reversal symmetry M. Ya. Amusia and V. R. Shaginyan The topological fermion condensation quantum phase transition (FCQPT) paves a new avenue in modern physics. Such a transition belongs to the unique type of quantum phase transitions the originators of the theory of instabilities omitted, and leads to the topological reconstruction of the Fermi surface.

"Van der Waals heterostructures with spin-orbit coupling" Van der Waals (vdW) systems offer an unprecedented freedom to combine materials with different electronic properties. Such freedom allows the creation of novel heterostructures with unique and tunable effects. In this talk I will discuss the properties of vdW systems in which one of the layers has strong spin-orbit coupling. I will consider in detail two exemplary vdW systems in this class: heterostructures formed by graphene and a topological insulator (TI), and heterostructures
