Almost the whole group decamped to Abingdon to attend the annual Theoretical and Experimental Magnetism Meeting (TEMM 2017). The meeting was combined with IOP Magnetism TCM joint group symposium and the UK-Korea workshop on strongly correlated electron systems. It was a great chance to talk to old friends and colleagues and to make new contacts. Dan Brunt gave an invited talk at the TCM theory meeting.
Prof. Ray Osborn, who is based at Argonne National Laboratory in the USA visited us just before TEMM and gave a CMP seminar, while Dr. Sylvain Petit of LLB -CEA Saclay came back from Abingdon with us to visit our labs and discuss future projects.
Monica Hatnean Ciomaga and Geetha Balakrishnan both attended this year's APS March meeting in New Orleans. Part scientific meeting – part Mardi Gras!
Geetha Balakrishnan has successfully organised and co-chaired (along with Rosalba Tatiana Fittipaldi) the Spring 2016, Towards Oxide Based Electronics (TO-BE) meeting here in the Physics Department at the University of Warwick.
The conference addressed recent global trends in the field of Transition Metal Oxides, covering a wide range of topics including fabrication methods, sophisticated analytical techniques and the fundamental understanding of these materials in various forms (thin films, bulk, nanostructures). The scope of the meeting also covered the use of oxides in applications and in industry.
Monica Ciomaga-Hatnean gave a talk on Friday 8th April.
Several members of the Group (past and present) attended the 2014 International Conference on Highly Frustrated Magnetism held in Queens College, Cambridge on July 7-11, 2014. Dr. Monica Ciomaga Hatnean and Martin Lees gave presentations. HFM 2014 was co-organised by Dr. Oleg Petrenko.
A Warwick Physics Day on the Latest Developments in Frustrated Magnetism:spin liquids, spin glass, spin ice state was held on Saturday 5 July 2014.
The day was organised by Oleg Petrenko and featured speakers from around the world.
Mo Saghir, Martin Lees, and Geetha Balakrishnan attend the APS March meeting in Denver, Colorado. The meeting featured presentations on all aspects of Condensed Matter Physics including our own work on topological insulators and exotic superconductors.
February 2014, International Workshop on Frustration and Topology in Condensed Matter Physics, Tainan, Taiwan
Geetha Balakrishnan and Martin Lees both gave invited talks at the International Workshop on Frustrated and Topology in Condensed Matter Physics held in Tainan, Taiwan from 13th to 16th February 2014. Prof. Lieh Jeng Chang, who completed his PhD in our Group in 1997, hosted the Conference and was a senior member of the Organizing Committee.
