SanD presents research at the 2016 PSROC Meeting

SanD scientist Cristine Villagonzalo and graduate student Gene Itable attended the Annual Meeting of the Physical Society of the Republic of China (PSROC) at National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU), Kaohsiung, Taiwan last 25-27 January 2016. The conference covered topics ranging from quantum physics to astrophysics, and was highlighted by plenary sessions on advancements in magnetism, superconductivity, metamaterials and photonics. In a nanophysics presentation, Cristine discussed her joint work with former student Carlos Baldo III on how spin-orbit interactions can be engineered to produce multi-functional spintronic devices. Meanwhile, Gene presented his research on the effects of disorder on the properties of topological Anderson insulators in a poster session.

Cristine is supported by the UP OVPAA through an Enhanced Creative Work and Research Grant. Gene's participation was funded by the DOST-SEI through its ASTHRD Program.
