Editorial / Third phase: an excellent start at Les Diablerets
Prof. Oystein FischerBy Prof. Øystein Fischer

With MaNEP entering into its third phase we have embarked on a new 4 years adventure together. In this phase the networking aspect of MaNEP has been reinforced and the number of members has grown considerably. Thus a great welcome to all our new members!

The stimulating atmosphere of the recent Les Diablerets meeting demonstrated the vitality of our field and showed that we are on the right track for four exciting years of science.

Three collaborators of MaNEP, Stefano Gariglio, Nicolas Reyren and Andrea Caviglia received recently the SPS Oerlikon prize 2009. They received the prize for the exceptional quality of their work on oxide interfaces.

I send them my enthusiastic congratulations.

I want also to take this opportunity to welcome our new communication officer, Adriana Bonito Aleman. Adriana is also the new editor of this newsletter and, as you can judge for yourself, she is already well installed in this job and I wish her great success for the continuation.
