Magnetic Nanomaterials

Researcher in charge: D. Niarchos

This activity is focused in the synthesis, characterization and study at atomic, molecular and mesoscopic level of magnetic nanostructured materials. These include a variety of magnetic nanocomposite materials and systems, composed by different components at nanometer scale. Their properties are not only defined by the properties of their components, but also by the morphology, the interface characteristics, and the interaction among the different components.
Research activities are focused in:
(a) the development, characterization, and exploitation of magnetic multilayer thin films and nanostructures, with emphasis in the experimental and theoretical study of magnetotransport properties, magnetoelastic phenomena, and the anisotropy of surfaces and interfaces.
(b) synthesis and characterization of magnetic nanoparticles of the core-shell type.
(c) the development and experimental study of nanostructured magnetic storage media, with optimal physical and magnetic properties, as well as the construction of magnetic reading heads with faster response at high frequencies.
