Arthur Epstein

Faculty Member Helps Develop First Light-tunable Plastic Magnet

Arthur J. Epstein, Distinguished University Professor of Physics and Chemistry has developed the world's first light-tunable magnet, through a 25-year collaboration with Joel S. Miller at the University of Utah. They describe the magnet in the current issue of the journal Physical Review Letters, in a paper co authored with Dusan Pejakovic, a doctoral student in physics at Ohio State, and Miller's former graduate student Chitoshi Kitamura, now at the Himeji Institute of Technology in Japan.
