The 8th International Workshop on Magnetic Wires - IWMW 2019

The 8th International Workshop on Magnetic Wires (IWMW 2019) will be held in Svetlogorsk (Kaliningrad region, Russia) on August 21st – August 22nd, 2019. This is already a 8th Workshop on Magnetic Wires. Previous seven International Workshops on Magnetic Wires have been organized in the following locations:  London, UK 1990; Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA 1994; Nagoya, Japan 1999; San Sebastian, Spain 2001; Zumaia, Spain 2008 and Bodrum, Turkey, 2010; Ordizia, Basque country, Spain 2015.

Magnetic wires have been available for more than two decades. During this time, the unique properties of these materials have attracted considerable interest for many prospective applications, especially, in the field of magnetic sensors and electronic devices. The organization of this meeting is based on the continuing interest of many research and technological groups in these materials. It is worth to mention that Magnetic wires are also important topic of research in the Russia and, particularly, in Kaliningrad, where this kind of research is carried out by the Laboratory of Novel Magnetic Materials (Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University).

Workshop topics:

  1. Magnetization process of thin wires
  2. High frequency properties and metamaterials
  3. Giant magnetoimpedance effect in thin wires and applications
  4. New wire-shaped materials (Heusler-type, Magnetocaloric, granular)
  5. Biomedical applications

Invited speakers:

  • Prof. Konstantin Zvezdin, Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia
  • Prof. Faxiang Qin, Zhejiang University, China
  • Dr. Mikhail Ipatov, UPV/EHU, Basque Country, Spain
  • Dr. Nicoleta Lupu, National Institute of Research & Development for Technical Physics, Romania
