2D Magnetic Materials and Heterostructures

The PDI Colloquium Series is a program of talks that bring experts and researchers together to discuss and explore the latest advancements and interdisciplinary perspectives. 

The series 2D Magnetic Materials and Heterostructures takes place from November 2023 until January 2024 at PDI. These events are open to the public and will take place in hybrid format. For in-person attendance by non-PDI affiliates, prior registration is required.
