11:30 General Discussion:
Session Chair: Prof. Teresa Puig, ICMAB-CSIC
Are the pinning centers of high temperature effective at low temperature?
What determines de irreversibility line?
What similarities can be gathered between CSD and PLD regarding vortex pinning?
Do we have isotropic strain in PLD nanocomposites at low temperature like in CSD?
What are the consequences of strain in the electronic density of state?
How can we measure the consequences of strain on the DOS or quasiparticles behavior?
Can microwave measurements answer some questions regarding the quasiparticles nature in strained regions?
15:00 Discussion and future collaboration initiatives
17:00 Closing of the workshop
