Symposium J

Magnetic and Spintronics Materials and Devices

Magnetism has been an active area of research for more than five decades, because of the emergence of several new research areas and their applications. From hard disk drives that have helped us to store huge amount of information to permanent magnets that have made small motors and speakers possible for human use, magnetic materials have played a significant role. With the emergence of Spintronics, a newer branch of magnetics, several more new applications are expected to rise. Several new materials are investigated and several new physical observations are made regularly, which make this field very exciting.

The symposium will cover, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Soft magnetic materials;
  • Hard magnetic materials
  • Materials for magnetic recording;
  • Materials for magnetic memory;
  • Materials for spintronics;
  • Physics of magnonics;
  • Skyrmionics;
  • Topological insulators for magnetics application
  • Motors and other magnetics based devices;
  • Magnetics for energy applications;
  • Magnetism and superconductivity;
  • Magnetic Oxides, including ferrites;
  • Magnetics for biological applications;
  • Neuromorphic computing.
