EX7: Magnetism in Low Dimensional Systems

Magnetism in Low Dimensional Systems (EX7)

Module convenor: Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn (Birmingham)

Module aims:

This course will look at the effects of low dimensionality, and competing interactions, on magnetic behaviour in solids. We will start with excitations in one dimensional magnets, such as Haldane chains, and then move on to two dimensional cases. The focus will be on using and interpreting experimental data from these materials, and the examples covered will be adapted to the interests of the audience. Notes from the course will be made available online afterwards
