    PhD student on "High-resolution magnetic imaging of nanotubes for spintronics"
    Announcement date: 08 October 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    The objective of the Phd subject is the study by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of magnetic nanotubes.  We are studying these as model objects to explore the concept of information storage in a 3D magnetic media, based on the propagation of magnetic walls along one-dimensional structures. Physico-chemical study of the material and magnetic imaging at the nanometer scale will be used to explore and understand the arrangement of domains and domain walls in these systems.

    The experimental techniques that will be used will be chemical and structural analysis by electron diffraction and high-resolution imaging, magnetic imaging and electron holography, in a transmission electron microscope. The student will perform sample preparation for electron microscopy, and experimental electron microscopy. The work also includes an aspect of processing, interpretation of data and participation in micro-magnetic simulations to assist physical understanding. These will be done in collaboration with the laboratory of simulation group SPINTEC / NEEL.

    In the framework of the PhD, the topic would be enlarged to other systems with exotic magnetization textures, such as magnetic skyrmions and their manipulation under polarized current in the microscope, combining instrumentation and state-of-the-art physics.  Another goal will be to dynamic studies with a nano-device operation (eg polarized current flow inducing precessional dynamics) in the microscope. Finally, efforts will be made on simulated images and simulations micromagnetism. These calculations will be performed in collaboration with the SPINTEC simulation group and will interpret our results.
