Pushing the boundaries – interrogating magnetism at material interfaces

this research article covers Dr Holcomb’s work which focuses on the properties of the boundaries of two materials. These are often very different to the properties of the bulk of the material and Dr Holcomb aims to develop methods for studying the boundaries specifically.

In order to keep improving electronic devices, whether it be computers or sensors, researchers must understand what is going on, on an atomic level. Understanding the behaviour of ions within materials is difficult enough, but when you put two materials together it gets much more complicated. Dr Mikel Holcomb, Associate Professor from West Virginia University, has dedicated her work to finding […]
