Summer School 2021

​Non-Equilibrium Dynamics of Condensed Matter in the Time Domain

This Summer School of the CRC 1242 takes place from September 13 to 16, 2021, in Eiterfeld - Buchenau, Germany.

It aims at introducing beginning and advanced graduate students to state-of-the-art theoretical and experimental concepts and achievements in this field.

The relaxation dynamics of a non-equilibrium condensed matter state, created by external stimuli such as pulses of light, electric voltages, or particles, reveals information about underlying microscopic physical processes.

The school will discuss experimental and theoretical tools to address this non-equilibrium dynamics in the time domain.

The number of participants is limited. Please register asap via email:

Schloss Buchenau, Hermann-Lietz-Str. 13, 36132 Eiterfeld Buchenau
