Successful EMFL User Meeting in Nijmegen

Date of news: 22 June 2018

Thursday June 21st HFML organized the 6th EMFL User Meeting. Over 60 users of the European Magnet Laboratories (HFML-Nijmegen, HLD-Dresden, LNCMI-Grenoble and LNCMI-Toulouse) shared developments, scientific results and exchanged ideas on high-field research.

The day started with a welcome by prof. Nigel Hussey, director of HFML. During the day 11 users presented results of their research and the facility developments at EMFL. There was a poster session, a tour around the HFML and FELIX labs and of course the yearly EMFL prize was awarded. Prof. Dr. Jochen Wosnitza, Director of the Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory and chair of the EMFL Board of Directors, handed over the award to Dr. Artem Mishchenko, EPSRC Research Fellow in the Condensed Matter Physics Group of the University of Manchester. He received the award for his groundbreaking research. Using advanced magneto-transport and magneto-capacitance techniques he has demonstrated impressively how high magnetic fields can be beneficial for uncovering and manipulating spectacular physical phenomena in 2D materials.

All and all it was a successful day. Jochen Wosnitza: “this user meeting was first of all well organized. And there was a lot of diversity in the scientific talks. They were all interesting and inspiring. I think the user meetings are getting better every year!”
