The Sheffield Centre for Advanced Magnetic Materials & Devices (SCAMMD) was established in 1984. In 2004, the University moved to consolidate and strengthen this activity with a new initiative which has seen the Centre now located solely within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.



On 28th June 2005, the newly refurbished laboratories were opened by Professor Chad D Graham Jr, University of Pennsylvania.

The opening ceremony included a lecture by Dr Giselher Herzer, Vacuumschmelze, Germany.
