Sarah Joyce: Poster
My name is Sarah (she/her) and I study Theoretical Physics at Trinity College Dublin. My research project is about lattice stretching and depletion of electrons - I will be simulating several metals on a software called VASP, changing different aspects of their quantum properties with the ultimate aim of making the metals more magnetic. I chose this research topic because I'd really like to learn more about how physics works on the nanoscale, and how we can tailor materials on this level to give them certain properties to suit particular purposes - for example, if the metals in my project can be made more magnetic then they could be used to create longer-lasting and stronger computer hard drives.

Here is the poster I created that summarises my research and findings on the title "Lattice stretching and depletion of electrons - when is it possible for perfectly ordered simple metals to become ferromagnetic?", which I completed during Summer 2021.
