Cumings Invited to Speak at American Physical Society

Materials Science and Engineering Assistant Professor John Cumings will deliver a presentation entitled "A Tunable Anomalous Hall Effect in a Nonferromagnetic System” at the Meeting of the American Physical Society, March 5-9, 2007 in Denver, Colorado. The presentation is based on his recently-published work of the same title, which appeared in Physical Review Letters 96, 196404 (2006).

The American Physical Society is the premiere physics society in the country, with over 40,000 members involved in academic, national, international, and governmental work. It publishes some of the most prestigious physics journals, including Physical Review Letters. Its so-called “March Meeting”, which focuses on condensed matter and materials physics, is the largest it sponsors. A showcase for the best in physics research, speakers are selected and invited after a competitive nomination process.

This is the first time Cumings has presented at the meeting as an invited speaker, and he is looking forward to it. “This is an opportunity for me to bring my discoveries about tuning ferromagnetic properties to a broad and well-informed audience,” he said. “I’m also excited about it because it’s very competitive. It’s an honor to be giving one of these talks so early in my career.”
