Topical Symposium
The 203rd Topical Symposium of the Magnetic Society of Japan

Research frontier of magnetic/spintronic functional devices on big projects

Research and development of new magnetic/spintronic functional devices have been in the spotlight. There are a lot of big projects related to magnetic / spin devices in this field. This 2-days symposium is a good opportunity to listen to and discuss many leading-edge researches using spin and magnetic phenomena at once. All speakers research in new magnetic/spintronic devices with conducting big projects, as their project leader and collaborator. New spin related phenomena as well as technologies of ultra-high sensitive magnetic sensor, ultra-low power consumption electronic devices, magnetic recording with high capability, and high reliability will be discussed. We are looking forward to your participation in this exciting event.
