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.
Our recent paper “Voltage control of ferrimagnetic order and voltage-assisted writing of ferrimagnetic spin textures” was featured as an MIT News article.
Professor Beach will be the first person to receive the Mid Career Award from the IEEE Magnetics Society at the upcoming 2021 INTERMAG virtual conference. The aim of this award is to recognize scientists and engineers at the mid-stages of their careers for outstanding research and technological contributions. He is being recognized for his pioneering …
Dr. Angela Wittmann was recently featured in the February 2021 week 7 “Physikerin der Woche 2021” article published by the German Physical Society (Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, DPG). Check it out here.
We say farewell to Kai who will be heading to Stuttgart, Germany for a post-doc in the Department of Modern Magnetic Systems at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. Congrats Kai!
We welcome Allison Kaczmarek to the group!
Professor Beach was named an APS Fellow this year for pioneering contributions to the understanding of chiral exchange interactions, spin-orbit torques, domain wall and skyrmion dynamics in magnetic thin film materials, heterostructures and nanostructures. He was nominated by the Division of Materials Physics.
Congratulations to Pooja Reddy on being selected by The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans. See her profile on the Fellowship website and her shoutout in the MIT News.
Congratulations to Mantao on a successful thesis defense on “Voltage control of electrical, optical and magnetic properties of materials by solid state ionic transport and electrochemical reactions”!!!
Felix leaves the group this month to start at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) where he’s been hired as a group leader. Congrats Felix!
