Skyrmion nucleation using Ga+ irradiation?

PhD student Mark de Jong has just uploaded his most recent results on tuning the magnetic interaction by Ga+ irradiated Ir/Co/Pt multilayers. In this work we show that we tune the relevant magnetic properties locally. This will give rise to energy efficient Skyrmion nucleation due to a lowered energy barriers whilst maintaining their stability and […]

New Project: Creating a astronomic-black-hole analogue on a chip!

Great news, just got a grant proposal approved together with Rembert Duine where we are going to try to build an on-chip black hole analogue using spin-waves (magnons). Apart from being really cool it might allow to build an on-chip magnon-laser / magnon-amplifier, so also for the field of magnonics it might have big impact. […]

EXAM TIME

Its exam time, strange to see all the student live during the exam where during term you only saw them via a computer screen and then even not all of them. Is this the new normal for education?

spin spirals in 2D materials with SEMPA

The manuscript by Marielle Meijer abouth the observed spin spirals and its chirality has just appeared in ACS NanoLetters, a great collaboration with Marcos Guimaraes from Groningen who started with 2D materials in FNA during his VENI period. Nice to see that SEMPA can be used for many different materials systems. Specifically we for the […]
