Magnetic nanomaterials

In the field of magnetic nanomaterials our research activities focus on systems related to potential applications in spintronics and magnetoelectrics. Simultaneously, we work on the development and fundamental aspects of the methods and the instrumentation which we use in the soft x-ray range. These activities mainly involve experiments at beamline UE46-PGM1 at BESSY II.

In the following we present a few examples of research carried out within the last few years.
