What can we do with magnetic alloys?

Heusler alloys and magnetic pnictides are potentially useful for cooling, sensing and spintronics. This session will review current research in Physics in these materials and discuss potential avenues of collaborative research.

Who is it for?

All researchers and PhD students especially those from the science faculty (physics, chemistry and engineering).


The session will provide an update on research in Physics in magnetic alloys, summarising the key properties and potential of Heusler alloys and magnetic pnictides. We will discuss opportunities for collaborative research around these materials.

What will I get out of this?

By the end of the session you will have gained an understanding of the scientific background of these materials and their applications (magnetic sensors, spin valves, energy storage, spin injection devices) and had the opportunity for open discussion of research opportunities around these materials.
