The Magnetic Materials Group

The Diamond Light Source Magnetic Materials Group (MMG) includes a number of facilities which enable a wide range of polarised X-ray based research into novel materials and phenomena.

The MMG Group User Meeting 2024

The Magnetic Materials Group will be hosting its User Meeting at Diamond Light Source on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th of June 2024.

The event aims to:

  • Explore new avenues for X-ray research in quantum and functional materials.
  • Provide a forum for attendees to propose directions for developing the facilities of the MMG and further enable the science goals of its research community.
  • Foster new scientific collaborations.
  • Offer a platform for early career scientists to showcase their research.

Theory of Soft X-ray Spectroscopy Workshop

As part of the MMG Users Meeting there will be the oppoortunity to attend also the Theory of Soft X-ray Spectroscopy Workshop, which will take place at Diamond Light Source on Monday 3rd June 2024.

The workshop, which is targeted primarily to early-career researchers, will include a series of lectures as well as hands-on sessions.

The workshop will be delivered by:

The topics covered during the workshop will be:

  • Interpretation of X-ray absorption (XAS)
  • X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (X-MCD)
  • X-ray photoemission (XPS)
  • Resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) experiments
