Prof. Tim St Pierre’s IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lectures continued in Korea, where he presented at Chonbuk National University, the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources and Korea University.
Tim also found another early example of “medical physics”. He writes, “After giving my Distingushed Lecture presentation at Cheonbuk National University, I visited the Herbal Medicine Museum in the traditional Jeonju Hanok Village. I was interested to find that the magnetic mineral magnetite is a traditional medicine in Korea. According to the museum label written in Korean script, the magnetite is used to treat “shock”.”
