Functional Magnetic Materials: from fundamentals to applications – International Conference/ Autumn School

The NU-MATHIMO Consortium are pleased to announce an International Conference / Autumn School which will take place from  6 to  8th September 2017 at SEAGATE Technology, Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

The scope of this Autumn School is the identification of new functional magnetic materials. To reach this goal experts from fundamental research as well as from applied technology will team up to present a broad overview of this field. The specific topics range from ultrafast magnetic dynamics, magnetic oxides via functional Heusler systems towards future magnetic recording devices and Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR). A broad variety of physical interactions must be considered to analyze the functional behavior of the new magnetic materials ranging from strong correlations and ultrashort charge transfer to plasmonic excitations.  The strength of combining experiment and theory to tackle the open questions describing the functionality of the systems, will be demonstrated in joint sessions.

  • Mark Gubbins (Seagate Technology, Northern Ireland)
