MagHEM

An NdFeB unit cell

The Condensed Matter Physics group are working on a 10-year MagHEM Project which was launched in November 2012.  

The  group are working with colleagues from the University of Exeter and St. Pölten University on the theoretical modelling aspects of developing high performance magnetic materials, which will make electric cars a more realistic option for the future.

The techniques for atomistic and electronic modelling are very different and the new materials being developed at nanoscale are so complicated that the group are researching ways of linking the models to create a more powerful approach.
