Group at École de Physique des Houches
From the 11th to the 16th, members of the group attended the joint workshop Spin mechanics-5 and nanoMRI-6 at the École de Physique des Houches in Chamonix, France. The meeting brought together an interdisciplinary community of scientists focusing on a variety of topics including, nanometer-scale magnetic resonance imaging, hybrid spin mechanical systems, spintronics, optomechanics, ultrasensitive force sensing, and magnonics.
Ph.D student Nicola Rossi, post-docs Dr. Boris Groß and Dr. Floris Braakman, and Prof. Poggio attended the week-long meeting and made presentations. Nicola presented a poster entitled, “Magnetic sensing with a self-assembled nanowire”, Floris a poster entitled, “Coherent force microscopy using a nanowire mechanical resonator”, and Boris a poster entitled, “Néel-type skyrmions in multiferroic lacunar spinels – mapping out a stability phase diagram using dynamic cantilever magnetometry”. Prof. Poggio gave an invited talk entitled, “Nanomechanics and nanomagnetism” summarizing our group’s recent work.
Annual QSIT Meeting in Arosa
From the 5th to the 9th, members of the group attended the 7th NCCR QSIT Winter School & 8th NCCR QSIT General Meeting in Arosa, Switzerland. Ph.D students Simon Philipp, Giulio Romagnoli, and David Jaeger attended both the school and the meeting, while Ph.D. student Lorenzo Ceccarelli, post-doc Dr. Floris Braakman, and Prof. Poggio attended the meeting. Simon, David, and Floris presented posters on their work and Prof. Poggio gave a talk on the 9th entitled, “Scanning probe microscopy with Quantum Sensors”. A special thanks to Ilona Blatter for organizing an excellent meeting.
Group members at ‘Advances in Magnetics’
From the 4th to the 7th, Ph.D. student Marcus Wyss and post-doc Dr. Boris Groß attended the Advances in Magnetics (AIM) conference organized by the IEEE in La Thuile, Italy. Marcus gave a talk on the 6th entitled, “Imaging the magnetic stray field of an artificial chiral spin ice system” and Boris gave a talk on the 7th entitled, “Néel-type skyrmions in multiferroic lacunar spinels – Mapping out a stability phase diagram using dynamic cantilever magnetometry”.
