Workshop on ab-initio modelling of adaptive d- and f-electron magnetic materials

Event Details

Adaptive magnetic materials, such as magnetic shape memory alloys or magneto-caloric intermetallics are characterized by the changes in structural and magnetic properties when subjected to an external influence.

The goal of this workshop will be the understanding of magnetic materials beyond the ground state, and their response to external stimuli. In particular, we aim to build solutions that will bridge the current gap in our fundamental understanding of the magnetic states of rare earth materials when compared with what is available for d-electron based materials. The proposed workshop aims to merge and enhance insights from the different computational approaches currently under development for the study of magnetic order and magnetic excitations. The predictions of the simulations and possible further improvements of the existing computational methodologies to f-electron systems will be debated by the computational materials modellers and experts in both experimental and applied magnetism.

The Workshop is organised by STFC Daresbury Laboratory, UK, Warwick University, UK, and Ames Laboratory, USA with support from The HARTREE-UK CECAM node, Psi-k and EPSRC.
