The Magnetism Group aims to promote and support physical science research in magnetism, magnetic materials and spintronics. Research in magnetism is broad ranging from theoretical and experimental work in fundamental physics to applications of magnetic materials.
The Magnetism Group aims to support the entire range of our community, ranging from early career to established researchers in academia through to industrial enterprises from small startups to large multinationals.
We currently organise a number of events which include:
- Magnetism 2016. Building on the success of the Manchester 2014 and Leeds 2015 conferences, Magnetism 2016 is jointly organised with the IEEE Magnetics Society, aiming to provide a focus point for magnetism research in the UK and Republic of Ireland
- Theoretical & Experimental Methods in Magnetism Meeting (TEMM), held annually and intended for all researchers of magnetism in condensed matter
- An annual workshop to introduce the techniques to fabricate, characterise and model magnetism and magnetic materials for researchers entering the area or wishing to update their knowledge
More widely the Group aims to support other events promoting magnetism research. As part of the Institute of Physics the Magnetism Group has responsibility for the allocation of funding to contribute to the costs of postgraduate students to present their research work at international conferences.
The Magnetism Group also aims to represents the interests of the magnetism research community within the IOP and to contribute to wider representation of the needs of the community.
The Group welcomes any ideas or suggestions for new ways in which we can provide support. These can be communicated by contacting any member of the committee.
