Energy Lunch with Professor Ian Baker: Jan. 23

The next installment of the Dartmouth Energy Collabortive's bi-weekly energy lunch series takes place Thursday, January 23 at 12:15 p.m. with Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth Professor Ian Baker giving a talk on his Irving Institute Seed Grant funded research project, "High-Performance Nickel-Iron (NiFE) Permanent Magnetics for Electric Motors and Turbines." Demand for high-performance permanent magnets for motors is increasing rapidly for applications such as wind turbine generators and motors in electric and hybrid cars. Sm-Co and Nd-Fe-B rare earth (RE) magnets, which have the highest energy product (BH)max of any magnets, are used for such challenging applications. However, RE magnets are very expensive and RE mining has been associated with severe environmental degradation. The project team aimed to establish a low-cost method to produce bulk L1- structured NiFe, which has magnetic properties comparable to the best RE magnets.

The talk takes place from 12:15 - 1:15 p.m. in Occom Commons, Goldstein Hall. Lunch is provided.  RSVP here.
