‌Computational Magnetism

Heat induced reversal

Professor R Chantrell

 The York computational magnetism group is at the forefront of theDr R Evans‌ development of theoretical and computational approaches to the properties of magnetic materials and their applications,
‌ which include magnetic recording and an expanding interest in biomagnetism. The group is led by Prof Roy Chantrell, appointed as a York University 40th anniversary professor in 2004 and Dr Richard Evans, appointed as Seagate lecturer in computational magnetism in 2015.. [Read more...]
