Conference on Spin Polarized Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and Nanoscale Magnetic Imaging
Time & Location
About The Event
NOTICE: Workshop is postponed until next year. Visit the website: https://u.osu.edu/spstm8/
There has been a remarkable growth in spin polarized scanning tunneling microscopy (SPSTM) and other nanoscale magnetic imaging techniques in recent years, spurred in part by interest in 2D magnetic and quantum materials, biomolecular magnets and single spins for quantum information science. Due to its atomic spatial resolution and single-spin sensitivity, SPSTM is an ideal probe for many systems and there have been numerous high-impact studies in the field within the last two years that will be featured at the conference, including single spin magnetic resonance and imaging of nanoscale Skyrmions. There are many limitations however on SPSTM, and thus the development of a range of nanoscale magnetic imaging techniques allowing for example, wide field of view, in vivoor time-resolved imaging is essential for complete understanding of these problems. We envision a scientific program that brings together researchers from disciplines including biomedical sciences, chemistry, physics and engineering, all with a central theme focusing on nanoscale magnetic imaging. The combining of methods with multi-scale imaging capabilities is central toward understanding the breadth of nanoscale magnetic systems, ranging from individual protein molecules to individual quantum bits. This program will include both experimental and theoretical developments, as well as the development of new systems and techniques. Ample time for social and informal discussions will foster new collaborations that would not be possible in more traditional disciplinary conferences.
