Keynote Lecture: Applications of multiaxial magnetic fields

James Martin graduated from the University of Washington in 1981 and joined the Solid State Physics organization at Sandia National Labs, New Mexico.  Interests in experimental, theoretical and simulation studies of polymers, sol-gels, colloidal aggregates, electrorheological/magnetorheological fluids, composites structured by multiaxial magnetic or electric fields, and the use of multiaxial magnetic fields to create vigorous non-contact flow phenomena. Smaller efforts in chemical sensors, kinetics of phase separation, mesoporous silica, quantum dot arrays, photoluminescence of semiconductor quantum dots and nanophosphors, metal nanoparticles, superparamagnetic nanoparticle composites and current-limiting thermistors.
