Satellite Meeting

On 21-24 September 2015 the NANOSENS project coordinator, National Institute of Research and Development for Technical Physics (NIRDTP), hosted the 7th international workshop on amorphous and nanostructured magnetic materials – ANMM 2015. The event took place in Iaşi, Romania.

The one day Satellite Meeting of the FP7 NANOSENS project was held on the 22nd of September, in conjunction with the ANMM 2015 workshop. The meeting was focused on the following topics: microsensors for medical applications and biosensors based on nanomaterials and nanostructured materials.

The aim of the meeting was to promote the exchange and dissemination of information from the NANOSENS project - research results, information on facilities, expertise, and research interests.

Contributions given by the IEEE Distingueshed lecturers, as well as by the invited speakers, including the NANOSENS twinning partners, have been observed by the audience with a considerable interest.

Topics covered during the Satellite Meeting:

  • “Perpendicular Magnetic Anisotropy: From Ultralow Power Spinstronics to Cancer Therapy” (P.R. Cowburn)
  • “Interaction of Ferromagnetic and Superconducting Permanent Magnets: Superconducting Levitation” (L. Schultz),
  • “Magnetoresistive Sensors with Picotesla Sensitivity for Biomedical Applications” (S. Cardoso)
  • “Magnetic Nanowires: Revolutionizing Hard Drives, Ram, and Cancer Treatment” (B. Stadler)
  • “Development of pT Resolution Magnetoimpedance Sensor Towards Medical Use” (T. Uchyiama)
  • “Functional Magnetic Nanoparticles for Tunable rf and Biomedical Applications” (H. Srikanth)

7th international workshop on amorphous and nanostructured magnetic materials

The four-day conference gathered 85 scientists working on amorphous and nanostructured magnetic materials research and optimisation for specific applications from across all over the world. More than 30 presentations covering the most recent developments in the given field have been delivered during the event. The NIRDTP team also presented their work “Anomalous Electrodeposition of NiFe and CoFe Nanowires and Control of Composition and Magnetic Properties”.

The second day of the event finished with a poster session, where 41 participants had a chance to present their research activities and achievements to the colleagues. At the end of the conference, the attendees were offered a tour in NIRDTP.

According to the participants’ feedback, the event was extremely successful. It contributed to establishing contact between fundamental research and technological needs for applications.
