The new science of oxide interfaces









The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


Organised by Professor Mark Blamire, Professor Dave Blank and Professor Judith Driscoll

Recent studies of the functional properties of heteroepitaxial interfaces between complex oxides have discovered a tremendous range of exciting new science, including properties such as magnetism and superconductivity which are not present in either parent material or appear at greatly elevated temperatures. This meeting will draw together leading scientists with diverse expertise to understand and exploit such oxide interfaces.

This meeting was followed by a satellite meeting on Superconductivity at oxide interfaces taking place at the Kavli Royal Society International Centre from 14-15 September 2011.

The proceedings of this meeting have been published in a dedicated issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.

The biographies and audio recordings are available below.
