Assistant Professor of Physics Gives Invited Virtual Seminar
Dr. Kristen Repa, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics, gave a virtual talk at Appalachian State University.
Dr. Kristen Repa, Assistant Professor in the Physics Department, gave a virtual talk entitled “Put a Spin on It: Tailoring Magnetic Properties for Spintronics Applications” at Appalachian State University on Friday, January 29, 2021.
She discussed her research using neutrons and DC magnetometry on spin-valve devices made from Nickel-Iron-Copper alloys. She used these samples as a case study to motivate how magnets work and why they’re interesting for current, and future, technological applications.
