TransAlp’Nano 2010 Satellite School “Quantum wires, boxes and molecules”

vendredi 12 mars 2010

This school, open to doctoral students and postdoc is designed to draw parallels between different systems where confinment plays a key role. These are quantum wires, quantum dots in molecules. A number of differents scientific aspects will be presented in this School

Stendhal comments on Varese and its surroundings :
Ensemble magnifique : au coucher du soleil nous apercevions sept lacs. Croyez moi, mon, ami, on peut courir la France et l’Allemagne sans avoir de ces sensation là.
- Stendhal, 1817
