Record Quality Factor Lowers Cost of New Particle Accelerator
A team at DOE’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory achieved a record-high quality factor when testing the first fully dressed radio-frequency cavity built for a particle accelerator project at DOE’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The quality factor, Q, exceeded the goal for the Linac Coherent Light Source II project and far surpasses current state-of-the-art standards. <read more>


Novel Intermediate Energy X-Ray Beamline Opening for Researchers
Researchers working to create next-generation electronic systems and to understand the fundamental properties of magnetism and electronics to tackle grand challenges such as quantum computing have a new cutting-edge tool in their arsenal. <read more>


Magnetic Field Helps Qubit Electrons Store Information Longer
Physicists at the Technical University of Munich, the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Stanford University (USA) have tracked down semiconductor nanostructure mechanisms that can result in the loss of stored information – and halted the amnesia using an external magnetic field. <read more>

StanTroutMagnetics Bootcamps Back by Popular Demand in 2016
Magnetics Business & Technology magazine has announced that Dr. Stan Trout of Spontaneous Materials will again host the Bootcamp Workshops in association with the Magnetics 2016 event. The Magnetics Bootcamps will take place on January 20th, 2016 in Jacksonville, Fla.

Dr. Stan Trout has been offering Bootcamps since 2007 and has trained more than 200 students, putting to use his more than 40 years of experience in the permanent and rare earth industries. Dr. Trout has a B.S. in Physics from Lafayette College and a M.S. and a Ph.D. in Metallurgy and Materials Science from the University of Pennsylvania. Stan is a contributing columnist for Magnetics Business & Technology magazine and is a consultant to the Magnetics Industry. His consultancy Spontaneous Materials provides practical solutions in magnetic materials, the rare earths, technical training and technical writing.


Workshop Overview:
Trout’s Bootcamps focus on the basics of Magnetics. If you need to understand magnets better for your job, want to get more from the conference presentations or are new to the field, then Basic – Bootcamp I is the right place to start. Bootcamp I assumes that one has little or no background in magnetics. The Bootcamp I workshop will cover the fundamental magnetic concepts such as hysteresis, what is magnetism, units, basic processing, magnetizing and thermal effects. However, if something more advanced is what you are looking for, attend Bootcamp II. <read more>
