Event description

Description

Final Friday Science: An initiative to offer business leaders innovative, profit boosting, scientific talks, along with great networking opportunities and fabulous coffee.

We start promptly at 08.30 and we will finish by ten o’clock, but do arrive early for the first hit of coffee. You will hear useful presentations, meet fascinating people and fit this easily into your working day.

Final Friday Science is a collaboration between The British Psychological Society (South West), Set Squared* and Haddleton Knight. The events are aimed squarely at decision makers, with unapologetically top drawer speakers tasked to give you memorable scientific information to help your organization’s performance.

OUR SPEAKERS:

Dr Paul Keatley

Paul is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Electromagnetic and Acoustic Materials Group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Exeter. His research is conducted in the Magnetic Materials group and his interests lie in the group’s related themes of Spintronics and Magnonics for which he is responsible for the day-to-day operation of a time-resolved scanning Kerr microscope (TRSKM)[1],[2],[3]. In the TRSKM a home-built scanning microscope and electromagnet are combined with an ultrafast pulsed laser to probe high-frequency oscillatory processes of nanoscale Magnetic Materials on picosecond timescales. Recently Paul has integrated the magneto-transport capabilities of the Spintronics theme with TRSKM to optically detect dynamic processes in nanoscale spintronic devices that utilise the spin of the electron in addition to its electronic charge.

This development allowed nanosecond movies to be recorded that reveal the magnetisation dynamics corresponding to technologically relevant microwave emission of spintronic nano-oscillators [4] fabricated by collaborators at The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), and the University of Gothenburg, in Sweden. To probe deeper into the nanoscale he has also developed a platform for TRSKM with sub-wavelength optical resolution using a nanoscale metallic hole on the tip of an atomic force microscope [5].

This year Paul began working on so-called spin-orbit torque (SOT) devices that consist of a simple heavy metal-ferromagnetic metal bilayer and show significant promise for the next generation of spintronic data storage applications. Paul’s recent developments to the TRSKM will help to provide fundamental insight into the high frequency and switching characteristics of such SOT devices for collaborators working in the data storage industry.

In his presentation Paul will describe some of the fundamental concepts in the fascinating field of Spintronics and explain how they have significantly impacted our day-to-day lives, perhaps unknowingly!
