The workshop is over and I'm now definitively feeling manganese. After so many talks about spin effects in and material properties of GaMnAs magnetic semiconductor compounds, I was glad to be back to nanotubes and superconductors for a while. Anyway, the stay in Niederalteich was nice and fairly quiet, even though we had stunning 19 talks on wednesday!
Afterwards, well, normal work started again. I finally have been able to more or less finish the proofreading of one BSc and one Diploma thesis. Friday a first oral exam marked the beginning of a new series during the upcoming weeks (the student did OK), and then it was finally weekend. :)
