International School on the Physics of Indirect Excitons  

Pisa Modena - 26.07.2014 - 01.08.2014 International School on the Physics of Indirect Excitons
An "International school on the Physics of Indirect Excitons" will take place in Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture (EMFCSC) in Erice, Sicily, from July 26 to August 1, 2014.
It is organized within the Marie Curie ITN Index.
Indirect excitons are bosonic quasi-particles in semiconductors with unique properties: they have long lifetime and spin-relaxation time, can travel over large distances before recombination, can be cooled down to low temperatures to form a quantum gas, can be controlled by voltage in-situ. Due to these properties, indirect excitons represent a model system for both the studies of fundamental properties of light and matter and the development of conceptually new excitonic devices.
The course will address
(1) fundamental physics of cold bosons in solid state materials,
(2) novel principles for optoelectronic devices,
(3) new systems with indirect excitons.
All the implementation of the indirect excitons will be covered by the scientific program.
