Workshop Projects

Novel Magnetic Materials
Novel experimental realizations of spin-chains and ladders, spin-gap and spin-Peierls materials, frustrated antiferromagnets; studies of quantum phase transitions and critical phenomena.

Colossal Magnetoresistance (CMR) Materials
Origin and materials issues in CMR phenomena, role of double exchange, phonons and Jahn-Teller distortions.

Nanocrystalline Magnetic Materials
Experimental characterization of individual nanocrystals, qunatum tunneling in such structures, and applications of this class of materials.

Extended Experimental Probes of Magnetism
Including synchrotron and neutron reactor based probes of magnetic properties.
