MSE researchers win best poster
MSE Ph.D. student Nisrit Pandey and recent Ph.D. graduate Maxwell Li won first place in The Minerals, Metals, & Materials Society poster competition. Their advisors are MSE’s Marc De Graef and Vincent Sokalski.
Revolutionizing computer memory—with magnets
Within two decades, the global demand for energy will outweigh the total produced. MSE’s Vincent Sokalski is solving this problem using magnetic materials for energy-efficient memory and computing.
Sokalski discovers connection between negative stiffness and magnetism
MSE’s Vincent Sokalski and his Ph.D. students recently discovered that negative stiffness governs how the domain wall moves in ultrathin magnets.
The future of computer memory
The Data Systems Storage Center, in conjunction with the Departments of MSE and ECE recently hosted the 16th Annual IEEE Non-volatile Memory Technology Symposium (NVMTS) at Carnegie Mellon University.
