The magnetism of magnetism

Presented by Dr Alexy Karenowska

Magnetism is a physical phenomenon that we encounter every day. And yet there is something inescapably far from everyday about it.

In this talk we explore the ways in which our desire to unpick the tantalizing mysteriousness of magnetism has shaped—and continues to shape—science and technology as we know it.

5 Nov 2013 - 1:30pm to 6:00pm

The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers using SQUIDs (Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices) for a range of science needs in different fields. SQUID sensors have found applications in geophysics, magnetoencephalography, measuring magnetic properties of materials, quantum information, detector readout and many other areas. This meeting will cover the full range of research using SQUIDs, and identify areas of common interest between researchers from different fields.

2 Nov 2013 - 2:30pm to 5:30pm

This event is organised by the Central Alumni office and it is open to all alumni.
