Description of the offer :

This Post-doc candidate will study the properties of hybrid ferromagnetic metal/organic interface, as known as “spinterface”, by magneto-transport measurement. The “spinterface” can exhibit highly efficient spin-filtering properties and presents a promising class of materials for future spintronic devices. Our recent achievement demonstrates that the spin-polarization at poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF)/Co spinterface can be actively modulated (even change the sign) by switching the ferroelectric (FE) polarization of PVDF [Adv. Mater. doi: 10.1002/adma.201603638 (2016)]. In this proposition, we wish to expand our knowledge on ferroelectric control of spin polarization at different FE-organic/ferromagnetic spinterface by taking advantage of our organic MBE and in-situ characterization tools in TUBE in Institut Jean Lamour (Nancy, France). The candidate will fabricate spin-valve structures based on organic materials with organic MBE, and then characterize the samples with magneto-transport measurements.
