Magnetic Heterostructures

UMN IRG3Magnetic Heterostructures uses advanced materials synthesis, novel measurement techniques and innovative theoretical approaches to explore spin transport across interfaces and in confined geometries. A particular focus of this work is the physics and materials science of transport and dynamics in hybrid systems in which ferromagnets are integrated with other materials, including semiconductors and normal metals. This research will impact upon the development of new magnetic sensors as well as non-volatile memory and magnetic storage media.
