May 27, 2011

Yumi Ijiri, associate professor of physics, has been awarded a three-year, $200,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to support her project entitled "RUI: Determining Magnetic Structures in Oxide-Based Nanoparticle Systems." Beginning in September 2011, the grant will fund research into unusual magnetic arrangements that form in very small magnets. She and her students will make use of equipment here at Oberlin and will also travel to the National Institute of Standards and Technology Center for Neutron Research in Gaithersburg, Maryland, to perform experiments.
