PURPOSE OF THE SCHOOL
The school/workshop will bring together researchers from universities and research institutes who work in the fields of (semiconductor) surface science, epitaxial growth, materials deposition and optical diagnostics relevant to (semiconductor) materials and structures of interest for present and anticipated (spin) electronic devices. The school is aimed at assessing the capabilities of state-of-the-art optical techniques in elucidating the fundamental electronic and structural properties of semiconductor and metal surfaces, interfaces, thin layers, and layer structures, and assessing the usefulness of these techniques for optimization of high quality multilayer samples through feedback control during materials growth and processing. Materials of particular interest are silicene, Collective Excitations in Advanced Nanostructures semiconductor-metal interfaces, semiconductor and magnetic multilayers and III-V compound semiconductors.
The following arguments will be treated during the lectures:
Other advanced seminars will be included in the final programme

Thucydides (~500 B.C.) said that the Elymi – founders of Erice – were survivors of the destruction of Troy. Ancient historians agreed that Erice was the oldest city in Europe.
In Erice you can admire the Castle of Venus, the Cyclopean Walls (~800 B.C.) and the Gothic Cathedral (~1300 A.D.). Erice is at present a mixture of ancient and medieval architecture.
