Description of the offer :

Spintronics is the field of research into materials and devices that use the spin of the electron for a new form of electronics that is low-power and intrinsically nanoscale. This PhD project is funded for 3 years and will investigate the fundamental physical characteristics of magnetic Heusler alloy thin films as well as their use in spintronic devices such as spin-torque oscillators and magnetic tunnel junctions.

We are looking for a student with a background in condensed matter physics, materials science or similar, preferably with some experience in lab-based materials physics experiments.

Further details are in the attached PDF (See details).
