Dmitri Litvinov, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, is one of many University of Houston engineering faculty and students who will benefit from the recent donation of a state-of-the-art LakeShore Vibrating Sample Magnetometer system to the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

Seagate Technology, Inc. gave the equipment to the college for use in its nanomagnetics research aimed at detecting the magnetic properties of materials and devices. With a market value exceeding $200,000, the system represents a major piece of research instrumentation for the college.

“We’re extremely grateful to Seagate for this generous donation to our college,” said Litvinov, who joined the college faculty last August after working for Seagate Research as a Research Staff Member for five years.

Seagate Research, a research division of Seagate Technology, Inc., is a world-premier industrial research lab founded under the leadership of Dr. Mark H. Kryder. Seagate Research is a major industrial partner of the college in the development of terabyte chip-size data storage systems based on nanopatterned magnetic recording medium.
