  • The magnetostriction project is responsible for the construction of an instrument which can measure the magnetostriction via measuring the deflection of a cantilevered thin film sample. This method gives an absolute value of the magnetostriction, is user friendly, and has a very high sensitivity.
  • Vibrating sample magnetometry is a method of measuring the magnetic moment of a substance. Conventionally, it operates by measuring the response of a vibrating substance being subjected to a known value of applied field.
  • Hwachol Lee is a graduate student whose current research utilizes DC magnetron sputtering in the Rascal deposition system to fabricate Fe-related epitaxial mulitlayer films for conventional magnetometry and neutron diffraction.
  • The Seed Project is headed by Tim Mewes and Patrick LeClair. It seeks to find combined DC and high frequency measurements of spin-torque effects in GMR/TMR nanoscale devices.
  • X-ray diffraction is the bending of x-rays via use of an obstruction. It can be used to identify certain properties of a substance by placing that substance in the path of the x-ray and measuring the altered behavior of the x-ray.


  • The wiki is back up after unplanned maintenance. Oops. --OEP 16:51, 17 July 2007 (CDT)
  • After a long and agonizing moving process, MEW has relocated to a new server. No known bugs as of now, but please report any bugs to Paul. --OEP 16:55, 3 July 2007 (CDT)
  • The new permanent address of MEW,, is now fully operational. --OEP 13:34, 29 June 2007 (CDT)
  • The Wiki is moving! We're on a new IP address now (, and soon, the new address will be Update your bookmarks! --OEP 17:24, 28 June 2007 (CDT)
  • Welcome to the new Main Page of MEW! On top of being more aesthetically pleasing, this new design hopes to serve as a better portal for changes in the wiki. --OEP 15:25, 26 June 2007 (CDT)
