The North–South divide: how magnetism has repeatedly revolutionised the world

Speakers: Professor Stephen Blundell

Magnetism is one of the oldest branches of physics, and one that found a technological application (the magnetic compass) long before the phenomenon was even partially understood. The history of magnetism is strongly intertwined with the history of
the world, and the key conceptual advances in the subject have had far-reaching consequences beyond the science. This talk will aim to bring out the main themes in the story, and bring everything up-to-date with the questions in magnetism that are occupying scientists today.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by: IOP Sheffield branch
