Description of the offer :

The objective of the PhD is to exploit the unique performances of scanning-NV magnetometry (using single nitrogen-vacancy defect in diamond as a nanoscale quantum sensor) to image and control exotic magnetic order in ultrathin antiferromagnet, such as spin cycloids and magnetic skyrmions, which are currently attracting tremendous interest for the design of innovative spintronic devices. We will first study the physics of antiferromagnetic domains in insulating oxides and then manipulate these domains in order to design artificial spin textures on-demand.
