International Symposium on Physics and Chemistry of Novel Superconductors and Related Materials

The International Symposium on Physics and Chemistry of Novel Superconductors and Related Materials will be held during March 30 - 31, 2011, at Okayama University. The purpose of this gathering is to provide a forum for discussing the recent progress in researches on various novel superconductors and related materials. The symposium will cover a wide variety of superconductors such as light-element superconductors ( C60, hydrocarbon, graphite and diamond), iron-based superconductors, copper-oxide superconductors and heavy Fermion systems. Furthermore, the interface superconductors and field-induced superconductivity will also be the center of topics in this conference.


Date  :  30 - 31 March 2011.
