Theory Meets Experiment in Low-Dimensional Structures with Correlated Electrons

This four-day workshop brought together theorists and experimenters who work on strongly correlated nanosystems adsorbed on surfaces, or on strongly correlated electrons in general. The aim of the event was to exchange ideas and discuss perspectives and future directions of characterization and description of strongly correlated nanosystems. The topics of this workshop included:

  • single-atom and single-molecule magnets, magnetic anisotropy
  • transport through nanostructures in and out of the linear-response regime
  • tuning the electronic properties via interaction with external stimuli or with a substrate
  • scanning-probe methods
  • electronic structure theory
  • advanced valence-band and core-level spectroscopies and their interpretation
