Whirlwinds in rust: antiferromagnetic vortices spotted for the first time

Vortices are beautiful structures that are encountered in nature at all length-scales, from the nanometer to the billions of light years. In a paper appearing today in Nature Materials, the Oxide electronics group at the University of Oxford and their collaborators at University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA) and the Diamond Light Source (UK) describe how they used a synchrotron-based microscopy technique to image an unprecedented form of magnetic vortices in thin films of hematite (α-Fe2O3, a form of ordinary rust).

Date: 
7 Jun 2018 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Venue: 
martinwood
Room: 
First Floor Audrey Wood Meeting Room

CalTech President Thomas Rosenbaum will discuss new ways to interrogate nature on 7 June 2018 from 12:00-14:00 in the Physics Department (Audrey Wood Seminar Room).

President Rosenbaum will share stories of great discoveries with a CalTech bent and how they illustrate the creativity, persistence, and inspiration of science. He intends to make remarks for 20 to 30 minutes and to take questions on any topic desired for the rest of the time.

This event is free and open for all students and researchers, but there are only 40 places.

Industrial Projects with Oxford Physics Students

We are now seeking industrial partners with problems to solve for the academic year 2018/19. This is an opportunity for your company to get some external input from enthusiastic and intelligent Oxford Physics undergraduates. In return, our students learn how their physics training can be applied in industry.
