Sydney Spin Resonance
21 March 2013: Dane McCamey was today awarded the International EPR Society's Young Investigator Award for 2013. This award, presented every two years, is "made for outstanding contributions to EPR (ESR) Spectroscopy by a young scientist" under the age of 35.
21 December 2012: Congratulations to PhD student Tom Keevers for the award of an Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) PhD Scholarship.
5 November 2012: Awarded an $860,000 ARC Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities Grant: "Pulsed Electron Paramagnetic Resonance: an enhanced capability for research in quantum
physics, materials science, chemistry and biological sciences". This grant will be used to develop pulsed ESR capabilities in the Sydney Region. The CI's are Dane McCamey, David Reilly, Joel Mackay, Peter Lay and Tim Schmidt (Sydney); Grainne Moran, Alex Hamilton and Andrew Dzurak (UNSW), and Louise Brown (Macquarie).
4 November 2012: Dane McCamey and PhD student Tom Keevers are attending the China-Australia Workshop on Quantum Control in Beijing this week, with a large contingent from the Sydney Quantum Science research group.
24 July 2012: Nature Materials today published a News and Views (by Joe Shinar) discussing our work to build a spin resonance based Organic Magnetic Field Sensor (see Baker et al. in Nature Communications for details).
15 June 2012: Group members Tom Keevers and Tamara Martin graduated today.Congratulations! Both are staying on as postgraduate students in the group - Tom for a PhD and Tamara for a Grad. Dip.
12 June 2012: Our paper looking at "Robust absolute magnetometry with organic thin-film devices" was published today in Nature Communications.
7 June 2012: A perspective piece with Christoph Boehme, "Nuclear-spin quantum memory poised to take the lead", was published today in Science. We talk about some great work extending the lifetime of quantum memory by Mike Thewalt (using phosphorus donors in silicon) and Mikhail Lukin (NV centers in diamond).
14 May 2012: "Ceramide mediates vascular dysfunction in diet-induced obesity by PP2A-mediated dephosphorylation of the eNOS-Akt complex" published online in Diabetes.
12 May 2012: Our paper "Slow hopping and spin-dephasing of Coulombically-bound polaron pairs in an organic semiconductor at room temperature" was acepted by Physical Review Letters. Congratulations to Will Baker (Utah) for his first first-author PRL, and to Tom for his first PRL.
1 November 2011: Alex Hamilton (UNSW), Hans van Tol (NHMFL, USA), Yoshiro Hirayama (Tohoku University, Japan) and I were today awarded an $800,000 Australian Research Council Discovery Project to investigate " Electrical spin resonance detection techniques for nanotechnology application".
Spin resonance, the science which underpins magnetic resonance imaging, is an extemely useful tool which is currently
incompatible with nanotechnology. This project will develop methods to integrate spin resonance techniques and
nanotechnology, which will significantly impact both fundamental research and technological advances.
17 December 2010: A new paper with Hans van Tol (NHMFL), Gavin Morley (UCL) and Christoph Boehme (Utah) was published today in Science. It describes a way to use nuclear spins as an electronic memory.
For a good summary, listen to this story from NPR's Morning Edition.
I was previously a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. I maintain a link to Utah as an Adjunct Assistant Professor.
My research focuses on spin physics in semiconductors and semiconductor devices.
