At MMM 2023 Usama won best student presentation award for his contributed oral presentation titled “Magneto-Ionic Enhancement of Exchange Bias and Modulation of Ferromagnetic Bi-stability”. He also won best poster award for his poster titled “Domain Wall Creep for Assessing Exchange-Bias in Ferromagnet/Antiferromagnet Thin Films”. Congratulations Usama!
Professor Beach has been elevated to Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to the understanding of magnetoelectric effects, domain wall, and skyrmion dynamics in nanostructures. Congrats!
Congratulations to Allison on being awarded the “Graduate Student Community Service Award” in recognition of her talents and excellence in the DMSE student community.
Congratulations to Sara on a successful thesis defense on “Proton Dynamics in Ultrathin GdOxHy Films for Magneto-Ionics”!!!
Congratulations to Daniel on a successful thesis defense on “Magnetic and spin-transport properties of rare-earth transition-metal thin film ferrimagnets”!!!
We welcome Michael Kitcher to the group!
Congratulations to Sasha on a successful thesis defense on “Electrical Detection of Antiferromagnetic Switching in Epitaxial Insulating Oxide”!!!
We welcome Cassie (Yixuan) Song to the group!
We wish Mantao, a PhD graduate and then postdoc in our group, good luck in his next postdoc in Professor Bilge Yildiz’s group. Hopefully we will get to see you around!
Angela, one of our postdocs, is leaving the group to start a group of her own at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz! Her group will be part of the experimental Condensed Matter Physics (KOMET) team in the Department of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science.
