The VVN invites you for a seminar by DyNaMat's prof. dr. Jonathan Leliaert. He will explain how he uses the sometimes unwanted thermal fluctuations on the nanoscale to his advantage!

At the nanometer length scale, thermal fluctuations are no longer averaged out the way we are used to in our macroscopic world, and instead provide an incredibly strong force. In nanoscale magnetic systems this causes thermal switching of the magnetization from one state to the next, often resulting in unwanted effects like the decay of the quality of data stored on magnetic recording media. In contrast, in our research we try to harness these thermal fluctuations and use them to our benefit. In this talk, we'll explore two applications:

  1. Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications.
  2. Nanomagnetic logic gates capable of reversible computing


You will discover what these applications mean on Thursday 17 november at 7:30 PM (19:30u), in the lecture room 3.1 in S1. 

This seminar will be given in English.

 We hope to see you all there!
