Quantum Magnetic Materials Podcast
In this podcast micro-series we give a brief overview of the world of quantum (two-dimensional) magnetic materials. In the three episodes we go from a very general introduction to the fundamental physical concepts and the applications in future electronics. We chatted with a diverse and enthusiastic group of leading scientists in the ﬁeld from diﬀerent parts of Europe.
This podcast series was recorded during the workshop on Quantum Magnetic Materials at the Lorentz Centre in Leiden, the Netherlands. It received ﬁnancial support from the Lorentz Center, Qnami, and the Dutch Research Council (NWO). The recording and sound mixing was performed by Wim Brons.
What are two-dimensional magnets? What do they do? Why do so many researchers spend their lives studying them? In this episode, Dr. Samuel Bladwell (Senior Editor at Nature Communications) hosts Dr. Antonija Grubisic-Cabo (Assistant Professor – University of Groningen), Dr. Maz Ali (Associate Professor – TU Delft) and Dr. Samer Kurdi (Postdoctoral fellow – TU Delft) to give a general introduction to two-dimensional magnetic materials and an answer to these questions. Here we assume only a very general knowledge on magnets and materials. Have you ever stuck a fridge magnet on your fridge? Then you should have the correct background for it!
What are the fundamental phenomena that make two-dimensional magnets work? Can they do things that your conventional magnet can’t do? In this episode, Marcos Guimarães (Associate Professor – University of Groningen) hosts Joaquín Fernández Rossier (Group Leader – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, PT), Rembert Duine (Professor – Utrecht University) and Zeila Zanolli (Associate Professor – Utrecht University). This episode assumes a basic knowledge on magnetism and solid-state physics.
What could two-dimensional magnetic materials be used for? Is there a chance of having them in your iPhone 37? What are the key challenges to apply them in the real world? In this episode, Marcos Guimarães (Associate Professor – University of Groningen) hosts J. Marcelo Lopes (Senior Scientist – Paul Drude Institute Berlin, DE), Semonti Bhattacharyya (Assistant Professor – Leiden University) and Jose Hugo Garcia (Senior Researcher – ICN2, ES). This episode assumes a basic knowledge on magnetism and solid-state physics.
