Magnetic thin films

Thin magnetic films are inevitable in today's technological society and due to the continuing discoveries of new magnetic phenomena and materials they remain a fascinating research topic.

Utilizing pulsed laser deposition, we prepare thin films of highly anisotropic RE-Co phases on various substrates to grow samples with tailored crystallographic and magnetic textures – ranging from isotropic to fully epitaxial with unique alignment of the easy magnetization axis. Our research interests are epitaxial growth, anisotropy and spin reorientation, high energy density materials and hard/soft magnetic, exchange coupled heterostructures.
