About The Author

Chi Ming Yim is currently working as a condensed matter physicist at the University of St. Andrews.

Using low-temperature spectroscopy-imaging scanning tunneling microscopy, I am studying the exotic physical phenomena (superconductivity, magnetic ordering) which are happening in strongly correlated materials such as iron-based superconductors that was newly discovered in the last decade.

Nanoscale Engineering Of Magnetism

The control of magnetism is important in the operation of many modern electronic devices. Hard disks, still the prevalent device for storage of large amounts of data, store information by encoding it in magnetic units. Providing new means to control and manipulate magnetism, therefore, provides new ways to read, write, or process information. A material
