Second year PGR Oliver Latcham discusses presenting at MMM 2019 and attending the SAM 2019: Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials:
From Oct. 9th-11th I attended a symposia “SAM 2019: Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials” in Naples, Italy and Nov. 4th-8th a conference “Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM: 2019)” in Las Vegas, Nevada, presenting my work on Hybrid Magneto-Acoustic Metamaterials in oral (SAM) and poster (MMM) formats. The work I presented focused on coupling between Magnon and Phonons in a 1D array of periodically arranged magnetostrictive and non-magnetic media.
Both the symposia and conference were invaluable experiences, allowing me primarily to discuss my own work, and the work of others in the same or similar fields. They were also brilliantly organised, and had packed schedules with plenty of social events. It was a great experience visiting these brilliant venues and talking again to friends and colleagues I had met at other events as well as meeting new ones.
