International Conference on Microwave Magnetics Comes to CSU

The International Conference on Microwave Magnetics will be held Sept. 12-14 in the Lory Student Center at Colorado State University. The conference will focus on new developments in all branches of fundamental and applied microwave magnetics and will bring together scientists, professors, engineers and students from all over the world.

The conference is being held in honor of Colorado State Professor Carl E. Patton to recognize his contributions to the field of high frequency and microwave magnetics.

"Patton is a highly respected scientist worldwide and has been a faculty member in the Department of Physics at CSU since 1971," said Sanford Kern, associate professor of physics at Colorado State.

The conference will emphasize experimental and theoretical research in magnetization dynamics and relaxation, high frequency and microwave materials, microwave and millimeter wave devices, and nonlinear waves and solitons. The program will consist of both plenary and parallel research presentation sessions.

Conference sponsors include Agilent Technologies; Colorado State’s College of Natural Sciences, Department of Physics, and Office of International Programs; IEEE Magnetics Society; Lakeshore Cryotronics Inc.; National Institute of Standards and Technology at Boulder; and Renaissance Electronics Corp.
