Symposium MD9—Magnetic MaterialsFrom Fundamentals to Applications

This symposium will focus on the current state and trends in magnetic materials developments, ranging from fundamental physics and new phenomena discovery toward applications in emergent technologies for information processing, energy, and biomedicine. While rapid progress has been made in this multidisciplinary field, significant gaps remain in engineering and fabrication of new materials with controlled properties and high performance spin-based devices in particular for implanting new spintronics concepts. Cutting-edge characterization tools allowing for high temporal and spatial resolution are crucial to provide fine details of chemical and magnetic structures and further advance the insight into the underlying microscopic mechanisms.

Symposium topics related to physics, materials science, fabrication and engineering as well as translational research will be connected by invited abstracts presented by the field leaders in order to foster the further development of these materials toward applications.

Topics will include:

  • Magnetic nanostructures fabrication and synthesis
  • Magnetic imaging and microscopy
  • Synchrotron techniques for magnetism characterization
  • Theory and modelling
  • Permanent magnets
  • Current driven magnetization processes and spin dynamics
  • Optical and ultrafast switching
  • Spin caloritronics
  • Topological states in magnetism
  • Spin transport in organic materials
  • Magnetic and spintronics materials for energy
  • Biological and biomedical applications
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.

Invited Speakers:

  • Johan Åkerman (University of Gothenburg, Sweden, Sweden)
  • Dhirendra Bahadur (Indian Institute of Technology Mumbai, India)
  • Yuping Bao (University of Alabama, USA)
  • Gerrit Bauer (Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan)
