Technical Program of the
AVS 54th International Symposium
October 14-19, 2007 in Seattle, Washington

The Magnetic Interfaces and Nanostructures Division (MIN or MI) has planned an exciting and comprehensive program for the 2007 AVS Symposium. We invite you to participate. A preliminary program and highlights can be found below. To submit an abstract, follow the links at the AVS Call-for-Papers web site.

Technical Sessions

The Magnetic Interfaces and Nanostructures Division (MI) program features recent results and technological challenges in magnetic/spintronic materials and devices including basic and applied experimental and theoretical studies of magnetism, synthesis and processing of new magnetic materials, and new advances in magnetics-based technologies. The 2007 program will highlight new advances in spin momentum transfer, magnetic nanostructures and thin films, ferromagnetic semiconductors, spin injection (with EM), magnetism at surfaces and interfaces, magnetic imaging and spectroscopy, exchange bias, tunneling magnetoresistance, and multiferroics. The Magnetic Interfaces and Nanostructures Division encourages submissions from graduate students and will be selecting the best graduate presentation for the 2007 Leo Falicov Award. The winner of this award will be selected from six semifinalists and will receive a cash award of $1,000.
