Nanostructured Magnetic Materials: Challenges for Next-Generation Materials

Program Theme

Magnetic materials are widely used in our daily lives, and they play a major role in improving the efficiency and performance of electronic devices such as motors, transformers and mobile phones. Therefore, the further improvement of their properties is essential for achieving on energy-saving and resource-saving society. As next-generation materials to achieve enhanced performance and new functionality, nanostructured magnetic materials have attracted much attention. However, we are facing various challenges for achieving the expected properties and new scientific and technical breakthroughs are required to overcome the challenges. With an aim to create these breakthroughs, this program will consist of with events to promote better understanding of previous studies on nanostructured magnetic materials and the associated challenges in this field, as well as providing a forum to discuss new approaches and ideas for the creation of next-generation materials.
