Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Harwell, Oxfordshire, UK
Report by D T Adroja and F Kruger
The 14th Theoretical and Experimental Magnetism Meeting (TEMM) was held at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK from 16-17 June 2016. As in the past this year’s meeting was extremely successful. TEMM has become an important part of the UK and international scientific calendars for those interested in the field of magnetism. This year’s two-day meeting was organised by the ISIS facility, the IoP Magnetism and Neutron Scattering groups, SEPnet, CCP on Computational Magnetism, PSI, ILL, and the Hubbard Theory Consortium.
The meeting attracted 88 registered participants from nine different countries. The participants included academics, senior researchers, post-doctoral fellows and PhD students. There were 24 oral and 6 poster presentations. The meeting concluded with software and instrument updates from the ISIS excitation group and tours of the ISIS facility.
The meeting presented an excellent opportunity to hear and discuss with leading experts from all over the world on topics of current research in magnetism. The topics included low dimensional and frustrated magnetism, effects of strong spin-orbit coupling, quantum spin liquids, computational magnetism, strongly correlated electron systems, multiferroics, and skyrmions.
