Magnetism 2015 – Leeds

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 16.08.00The 2015 meeting of the UK magnetism community closes today after two days of parallel sessions as well as posters on all things magnetism. Highlights include a plenary session by Professor Stuart Parkin and the Wohlfarth lecture given by Professor Laura Heyderman. Each sessions also enjoyed an invited talk including the IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Professor Russel Cowburn. The wide range of talks from theoretical and experimental groups is an excellent showcase of the magnetism community in the UK. As well as learning new physics the event also involves a great dinner and a great chance to network. My talk on ultrafast thermally induced magnetisation switching can be found here.
