Magnetic transitions using ions
- Microscopic understanding of disorder induced ferromagnetism in B2-alloy thin films (DFG funded)
2. Magnetic patterning using ions
Disorder induced ferromagnetism can be deployed for patterning ferromagnetic nanostructures embedded within non-ferromagnetic surroundings. Shown here is a TEM holographic image of magnetic field lines emerging from two 500 nm wide ferromagnetic stripes. The pattern is comparable to that of bar magnets separated by a few mm spacing. Here, we also observe features that are less than 100 nm in size. (more info...)
3. Magnetism and transport in nanostructures
Periodic magnetic structures show intriguing magnetization reversal, transport and dynamic properties. For examples, we have shown that confined antidot structures (above) can possess multiple magnetization configurations. These configruations may translate into programmable spin-wave and magneto-transport properties. (more info...)
