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

Superconductivity in oxides is easily modified by the presence of interfaces. This workshop will bring together experts in a broad range of phenomena associated with interfaces, including  strain and field-effects, the coupling of superconductivity and ferromagnetism and the interaction of interfaces and pairing symmetries, with the aim of exploring methods for enhancing and controlling superconductivity in oxide nanostructures.

Programme available to download here (PDF).

This meeting directly followed a broader Discussion meeting on The new science of oxide interfaces held at the Royal Society in London from 12-13 September 2011.

The biographies and audio recordings are available below.
