Fuchs receives DOE funds to help reveal mysteries of magnetic materials

By: Melanie Lefkowitz

Gregory Fuchs, associate professor of applied and engineering physics, has been awarded a three-year grant by the U.S. Department of Energy to develop his pioneering technique for observing tiny magnetic structures, and to apply the technique to explore their little-known properties. In prior research, Fuchs developed magneto-thermal microscopy, a relatively simple method that allows researchers to image the dynamics of magnetic materials. With this funding, Fuchs and his team will apply their method to the study of magnetic skyrmions – tiny magnetic patterns with particle-like properties... Read more
