European School on Magnetism 2023

From 4 to 15 September 2023, I participated in the 2023 European School on Magnetism (ESM 2023). The topic was “Nanomagnetism for emerging technologies”, and the school was held in a mixed format: both onsite in Madrid, Spain, and online. The online lectures and tutorials covered a wide range of topics from fundamentals of magnetism to advanced detection and fabrication techniques, as well as modern applications. I also used the chance to present our work online and was awarded a poster prize, which included a voucher for free attendance to the International Conference on Magnetism conference ICM2024 to be held in Bologna. I am looking forward to attending this conference, which would provide a great opportunity for further networking and sharing iStOMPS ideas among the magnetic community.

CLEO Europe 2023

On June 26-30, 2023, Lorenz and Elizaveta attended the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics/Europe – European Quantum Electronics Virtual Conferences (CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2023), which took place in Munich, Germany. CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2023 are Europe’s largest conferences on photonics, laser technology, and related research fields. The conference program featured plenary and keynote lectures, tutorials, talks, and poster sessions. We also visited the huge exhibition LASER World of PHOTONICS to see the latest trends and innovations in photonics industry.

Elizaveta delivered a talk titled “Generation of Tunable Narrowband Azimuthally Polarized Pulses for Magnetic Excitation of Eu3+ Ions” in the session “Ultrafast Spectroscopy”. She described a developed experimental setup for generation of narrowband spectrally tunable ultrafast pulses with azimuthal polarization.

Lorenz presented a poster “Particle-in-Cell simulations of ultrashort optical laser pulses for magnetic field enhancement and electric field suppression” with his investigations of metallic apertures of various shapes and their role in the magnetic field enhancement.

We enjoyed the diverse scientific program, social dinner, networking, meeting our collaborators, as well as Munich sightseeing and cultural events.

SPECATMOS Summer School

From 15th to 20th of May 2022, Elizaveta and Valentina visited the International Summer School SPECATMOS on the “Spectroscopy and Atmosphere: Measurements and Modelling”, which took place in Fréjus (France). There was a 1-week programme for lectures, tutorials, poster sessions, and networking.

Elizaveta presented a poster titled “Time-Resolved, State-Selective Spectroscopy of Laser-Ignited Plasma in Atmosphere”, where she also explained the work principles of a streak camera. We plan to use this precise spectroscopic tool to study luminescence of Eu3+ ions and other potential targets.


Elizaveta joins iStOMPS

Hello, my name is Elizaveta Gangrskaia, and I am happy to become a new PhD student in iStOMPS!

I finished a double degree programme at the Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology (Finland) and at the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (Russia) and got an MSc in Physics and an MSc in Technology. In my Master’s thesis I was studying (both experimentally and theoretically) microparticle diamagnetic trapping to develop a levitodynamics platform. During my Bachelor’s studies, I was researching metal nanostructures on glass substrates for Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy applications.

Within Subproject A, I will work on experimental generation of enhanced isolated magnetic fields and their implementation for spectroscopic studies of lanthanide ions.
