CEDENNA organizes numerous outreach activities, including conferences, talks, competitions, schools, seminars and exhibitions, to present its work to the general community, generating greater interest in science among the youth of our country.
The Chilean Academy of Sciences, led by Dr. M. Teresa Ruiz, distinguished Alejandro León Vega with the 2017 Doctoral Thesis Award in the area of Exact Sciences, who since this year has been part of the Center. Alejandro is a PhD in Sciences with a major in Physics from the University of Chile and his work proposes that the dynamics of magnets manipulated by polarized currents in spin are equivalent to those of physical systems forced to the double of natural frequency. This allowed to predict phenomena in nanomagnets. The title of the work is: “Dissipative magnetization textures induced by Spin-Transfer torques and alternating magnetic fields.”
