The Magnetism Group aims to promote and support physical science research in magnetism and magnetic materials.
Research in magnetism is broad ranging from theoretical and experimental work in fundamental physics to applications of magnetic materials.
The Magnetism Group supports our research community by running an evolving series of one-day workshops aimed at postgraduates and young researchers. Each workshop is focused on a particular theme with topics ranging from preparation and patterning of magnetic materials, through magnetic measurement methods to the application of X-ray and neutron techniques to the study of magnetic systems. New ideas for workshops are welcomed.
The Group also organizes and supports research meetings including an annual theoretical physics meeting and the Current Research in Magnetism (CRIM) meeting as well as contributing to the Condensed matter and materials physics (CMMP) meeting.
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 an international conference.
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.
