Magnetism and Magnetic Materials
A brand-new graduate course!
Physics Department at Brock University is happy to announce that the graduate
course on Magnetism and Magnetic Materials is being offered in an intense
two-week format during May 9-26, 2014. The course is taught by Dr. Reinhard Kremer
of the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany, and an
adjunct professor of Physics at Brock. The expected course load is 4 hrs of
lecture+tutorial per day, May 9-23, with a final exam on May 26, 2014.
Fundamental and device applications of magnetism will be explored:
magnetic fields, flux density and magnetization;
magnetic materials, magnetic measurements;
magnetic properties of materials;
domains, domain walls, domain processes, magnetization curves and hysteresis;
soft magnetic materials and applications;
hard magnetic materials and applications;
new developments and recent progress: magnetic multilayer structures.
The course is open to Brock graduate students in Physics, and it is also
available for credit to graduate students of other Ontario Universities
through the Ontario
Visiting Graduate Student Program (OVGS), without having
to register at Brock and requiring no payment beyond the
usual graduate fees at their home University (though filling out this form is required). The schedule being planned
should leave visiting students with ample opportunities
to explore the unique natural environment of the Niagara area, with its multitude
of hiking and biking trails, cultural heritage sites, and other amenities.
Brock Conference Services should be able to help you plan your visit.
Instructor: Prof.Dr. Reinhard Kremer
Dr. Reinhard Kremer is a world-renowned researcher in the field of magnetism. His current research
focuses on systems with unusual magnetic ground states (low-dimensional magnetic systems,
spin-Peierls systems, spin glasses, geometrically frustrated systems, chiral magnetic systems);
novel magnetoresistive materials; new and unusual superconductors; phase separation in
high-Tc superconductors; crystal growth; development of new experimental techniques.
As of October 2008, his list of publications has 307 entries.
