Advances in Modern Magnetic Materials

A workshop bringing together world leading experts in magnetism.

Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK

Event Details

Magnetism is a tremendously interesting subject offering challenges to academics worldwide. In addition, however, it also has wide reaching applications. The magnetic recording industry has benefited strongly from this with the discovery of giant magnetoresistance in thin films. In addition advances in magnetic semiconductors, multiferroics, patterned media, interaction between superconductivity and magnetism and topological effects have generated much recent interest. As a result magnetism continues to inspire excitement due to many fundamental phenomena and possible resulting applications.

The workshop aims to bring together world leading experts in magnetism. In addition the location will offer a unique chance to introduce researchers to the BLADE instrument at Diamond, which is a polarised soft X-ray source capable of performing scattering and absorption measurements.
