The knowledge sharing seminar by

Dr. Michael Ortner

Staff Scientist at Silicon Austria Labs GmbH, Austria

You are most welcome to our knowledge sharing seminar presented by Dr. Michael Ortner. We would like to thank Michael for his great enthusiasm and willingness. After the talk, if you are interested in learning more from him, we can arrange other potential lectures.

Abstract: In this talk I will give an introduction to the open-source project Magpylib. Magpylib is a Python package for calculating 3D static magnetic fields of magnets, line currents and other sources. The computation is based on analytical expressions and therefore extremely fast. An user-friendly geometry interface enables convenient relative positioning between sources and observers.
