WORKSHOP on ELECTRONIC CRYSTALS, ECRYS-2008

The International Workshop on Electronic Crystals will be held again !

Continuing the chain of the earlier meetings ECRYS 1993-2005, we shall organize the next one ECRYS-2008 in August 2008 (24/08 - 30/08).
It will take place in Corsica, France, at the Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse, a similar arrangement as for ECRYS-2005.

The series of workshops ECRYS pursue several goals :

  • To gather various communities engaged in studies of static and dynamic properties of spontaneous superstructures.
  • To present comprehensively the current activity in all types of Electronic Crystals : Charge Density Waves, Spin Density Waves including the Field Induced ones, Wigner Crystals (in semiconductors, at the He surface, in high magnetic field, of colloids) ; Charge Ordering and Ferroelectricity in organic conductors ; Superstructures due to magnetic breakdown of singlet states (FFLO and CDWs) ; Stripes, Disproportionation, and local effects in doped oxides ; Electron Ordering at charged biomolecules and membranes ; Junction effects.
  • To emphasize the common phenomenology of Electronic Crystals, Vortex Lattices, Domain Walls, friction, etc : sliding versus pinning and glassy behaviour ; plasticity and all related nonlinear, nonstationary and inhomogeneous effects ; related physics of topological defects : solitons, dislocations, instantons, phase slips, current conversion.
  • To review advanced experimental approaches : synchrotron radiation - space resolved and micro diffraction ; nanoscale designs by focused ion beams ; quantum mesoscopics of the sliding state ; tunnelling, optical and ARPES accesses to pseudo- and intra- gap effects and to electronic interactions.
