EXTREMAG hosts its debut User Meeting

On 22nd July 2020, the EXTREMAG Facility hosted its debut (virtual) User Meeting.

The GoToWebinar meeting was attended by more than 60 participants from around 25 institutions spanning 7 countries and 3 continents.

The Programme featured three invited talks from leading experts in magneto-optics and high frequency magnetism, and three contributed talks from recent users of the EXTREMAG Facility.

The organisers thank the speakers, session chairs, attendees, and our sponsor the EPSRC.

If you would like to follow up on any details of the EXTREMAG Facility or discuss possibilities for user time, please contact us using the details on the Contact Page.

We look forward to our next User Meeting!


COVID19: EXTREMAG temporarily closed and 2nd user call deadline extended

EXTREMAG hosts first external user

The start of October saw EXTREMAG host its first external user, Tom Lyons, from the 2D materials research group at the University of Sheffield.  Tom successfully used the EvicoMagnetics wide field Kerr microscope with CyroVac microscopy stage to investigate two-dimensional low temperature ferromagnetic materials.
