Dr. Datta Presents Research at the Gordon Conference


DattaDr. Trinanjan Datta, Assistant Professor of Physics, presented a poster at the 2012 Gordon Research Conference and Seminar on "Correlated Electron Systems". The weeklong conference was held in June at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. The poster was titled "Effects of Magnetic Field, Anisotropy, and Biquadratic Interactions in Type-IIA fcc Antiferromagnets Studied by Linear Spin-Wave Theory". The results of this work are published in the February 2012 issue of Physical Review B. The published work predicts not only the effect of external magnetic field and anisotropy in three dimensional quantum FCC magnets, but also predicts the neutron scattering spectra and structure factor for MnO and CoO. Such theoretical predictions on magnetic compounds guide material scientists to fabricate novel magnetic devices for modern day technological purposes. Dr. Datta gratefully acknowledges the Augusta State University Katherine Reese Pamplin College of Arts and Sciences for research funding and travel support. 

Congratulations to Dr. Datta on his fine work!
