Previous Schools

The Capri Spring School on Transport in Nanostructures is primarily intended to instruct phd students and young postdocs. In the course of a week, several three and four hour lectures are delivered by leading experts on transport in nanostructures, supplemented by a few shorter seminars by the participants  The speakers are asked to give graduate level presentations introducing to state-of-the-art methods and techniques applied to quantum systems which are technologically particularly relevant in nanoelectronics. Novel discoveries and technological advances in recent years allow the growth or fabrication of nanostructures, such as carbon nanotubes, atomic size contacts, nanoscale Josephson junction circuits, or few electron quantum dots, as well as hybrid devices and newly prepared materials such as graphene or topological insulators. In these systems, not only familiar properties of electrical transport, like Ohm′s law, are violated, but new transport effects arise due to the interplay of strong electron–electron interactions, disorder, reduced dimensionality, and quantum mechanical coherence. While fabrication and measurement techniques are often quite different, e.g., for chemically synthesized single molecule bridges, on–chip Josephson junction noise detectors, or quantum wires grown in semiconductor heterostructures, the new quantum phenomena arising from electronic correlations, quantum coherence, disorder, and the influence of the electromagnetic environment are closely related in all nanostructures. 

The Capri Spring School is an annual event taking place on the Island of Capri in the bay of Naples (Italy). In this BOOKLET you can find information up to the 10th edition, including a full list of participants.
