Welcome to the Nanomagnetism Research Group's web page, where you can learn about what
we do and who we are.
We are part of the Condensed Matter Physics Group of the
Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manitoba.
Our research programs exist at the exciting convergence of materials physics and chemistry. We use cutting
edge experimental techniques to make, identify and understand the structure/composition/magnetism
relationships in nanoscaled systems (e.g. nanoparticle and thin films) and magnetic materials with
similar constrained geometries. Research programs involve active collaborations with world-class experts
in the theory of contemporary magnetism and simulations. We also pursue actively research enabling
applications of nanomagnetic and nanoscale systems; drug delivery, hyperthermia, new catalytic materials
and power applications are examples.
PHYS4676/PHYS4768 (Honours Thesis) projects available (e.g. experimental and simulation research into nanowires and antidots,
and new nanoparticle systems) - please contact Prof. van Lierop.
