The use of an antiferromagnetic material with large spin-orbit effect in tunnel junctions with improved anisotropic magentoresistance has been demonstrated in a international collaboration leaded by ICMAB. See more at Highlights page.
In the framework of the European project DAFNEOX, a paper in collaboration between ICMAB, ICN2 and IPB explores the spontaneous formation of self-assembled ferrimagnetic Mn3O4 inclusions inside an antiferromagnetic LaMnO3 thin film. See more at Highlights page.
Stacking fault formation during growth of oxide films leads to the spontaneous formation of double chemical terminated surfaces with distinct local properties. See more at Highlights page
Strain-induced perpendicular magnetic anisotropy in La2CoMnO6-e thin films and its dependence on film thickness A new paper published in Physical Review B demonstrates that the strong perpendicular magnetic anisotropy observed in LCMO films may be attributed to tensile stress. See …
Baptiste Colson, from Paris, has joined us for an internship until End of June. He will work on thin film preparation and characterization. He is also a good badminton player so do not hesitate to ask him for a match.
Misfit Dislocation Guided Topographic and Conduction Patterning in Complex Oxide Epitaxial Thin Films In this work, we uncover the role of misfit dislocations in creating periodic surface strain patterns both topographic and functional during the growth of complex oxide films. …
Our deepest congratulations to Bernat Bozzo who graduated with a PhD Thesis on ”Superconducting Joining of Melt Textured YBCO Bulks”. He got the highest qualification: “Excellent”.
