Cafe Scientifique – Magnets

19th June - 8:00 pm

Speaker: Dr Timothy Moorsom, Research Fellow at the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Leeds

Although magnets have been important in human life for many centuries, it is only recently that scientists have properly understood them. One of the most important breakthroughs in magnetism was made at the University of Leeds in the 1930s.

Today, magnets are at the heart of renewable energy production, data storage and the electrification of transport. Magnets may soon help us treat disease, send spacecraft to Mars and power a new generation of Artificial Intelligence.

Dr Timothy Moorsom is a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow at the University of Leeds. He has spent his career studying magnets (and has invented some new magnets himself). He will explain what a magnet really is, the incredible things they can do and why they might be the most important resource of the 21st Century.

Cafe Sci Leeds was set up to encourage understanding and debate about topical scientific research and issues in an informal setting. Speakers are invited to present a short talk on an area of science in which they have been involved which is then followed by questions and comments.
