Three-dimensional spintronics is a fast emerging topic. On the fundamental side this opens pathways for novel spin configurations and magnetization dynamics, owing to the possibility of three-dimensional spin textures in nanowires and nanotubes, periodic boundary conditions and curvature-induced effects. On the applied side this would allow to extend existing spintronic technologies to three-dimensional architectures, liable to compete as an ultra-high density storage medium.
The objective of the PhD is to explore the physics of basic 3D spintronic building blocks. We will consider chemically-synthesized single-shell and core-shell magnetic nanotubes, and mostly address their magnetization textures and dynamics. A key tool for the PhD will be transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The student will be inserted in a larger action on magnetic nanowires and nanotubes conducted in the spin textures team, involving researchers and young scientists from Spintec laboratory, Institut Néel and beyond.
