Dr. 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!
