ISIS to host UK-Korea joint meeting on spintronics and advanced materials
Monday 15 April 2013
On 18th-19th April 2013, researchers from the UK and South Korea will meet at ISIS to strengthen international relationships and collaboration in spintronics and advanced materials research.
There has been a very positive response from the spintronics community, following a similar event hosted in Seoul last year. This year’s meeting will provide a perfect opportunity to showcase the work at ISIS and Diamond, as well as foster international collaboration between researchers.
Korean research is particularly strong in the area of spintronics which aligns well with the UK’s interest in advanced materials. Spintronics aims to extend and replace conventional electronics through using the spin rather than the electric charge of an electron.
This meeting is supported by: Samsung R&D UK, ISIS/STFC, Diamond Light Source LTD and the National Research Foundation of Korea, Ministry of Science ICT & future planning program.
