We offer a 2-year Postdoc position, embedded in the Research Group Physics of nanostructures at the Department of Applied Physics, Eindhoven University of Technology. The experimental research involves fabrication of relevant device structures (antiferromagnetic spintronics), magnetic and structural characterization, and in particular spin transport studies.
Antiferromagnets are characterized by the absence of macroscopic magnetism due to an internal spin texture of antiparallel moments, which is an extremely favourable feature for robust data storage. The proposed experiments are concentrating on the active use of ultrathin antiferromagnets for reading and writing information, and will give new fundamental insights regarding the complex interaction between spin currents and nanomagnetic textures. The PD will work closely together with a PhD-student already working in this field, currently exploring several materials and structures for the realization of these novel data storage possibilities.
