Chen to Attend EAPSI 2009

Aaron Chen, a 2nd year physics graduate student in Prof. R. Sooryakumar's group, has accepted an invitation from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) to attend the East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI) in Tokyo, Japan. Funding agencies: National Science Foundation (NSF) and (JSPS).

Aaron's project title is: Study of the ground states of spin-1/2 Kagomé antiferromagnets. He will be working with Professor Hidekazu Tanaka, Department of Physics, at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Prof. Tanaka's group is a frontier group involved in discovering new materials which exhibit exotic magnetism. Recently, they are interested in investigating S=1/2 Kagomé antiferromagnets of the form A2Cu3SnF12, where when A=Rb they discovered that it showed a disordered ground state at low temperature.
