The aim of the summer school was to familiarize PhD students and junior postdocs with the physical phenomena observed in solid-state systems with reduced dimensions, with an emphasis on surfaces and interfaces in correlated oxides. The state-of-the art methods to manufacture, characterize and theoretically describe such materials were presented in pedagogical, comprehensive lectures by leading experts in the field. It was also discussed, how new phenomena and applications arise by elaborate tailoring of novel systems.

Covered Topics:

Pulsed-laser deposition and molecular beam epitaxy

Resonant elastic and inelastic x-ray scattering and reflectivity

Neutron reflectivity

Transmission-electron microscopy and EELS

Scanning-tunneling spectroscopy

Photoemission spectroscopy

Transition-metal-oxide electronic structure and properties

Density-functional and model Hamiltonian methods

Novel functionalities and correlated-oxide electronics
