Every year, Loyola's undergraduate students travel to the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP). This annual conference, organized by the American Physical Society,  takes place in January on various campuses across the country. Our students present their research and participate in various activities.

Dr. Armin Kargol has published the second volume of a book "Introduction to Cellular Biophysics", titled "From Membrane Transport to Neural Signalling". This volume, together with Part One, "Membrane Transport Mechanisms" will be used in a course PHYS A436 "Cellular Biophysics" which Dr. Kargol will teach in Fall'20. 

Magnetic materials are used in many devices for various applications. To optimize the performance of these devices, we need to characterize the materials as best as we can. In this paper and presentation, I studied magnetic properties of an alloy, CoFeB, in a multilayer structure. CoFeB alloy is used in a new type of memory that is called “STT-MRAM”.
