Mesoscopic Systems

The Mesoscopic Systems Group is based at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and is a joint laboratory between PSI and the ETH Zurich. The current research focus is the investigation of novel magnetic and multiferroic thin film systems. Patterned magnetic thin films are of fundamental scientific interest, with new phenomena occurring as the lateral dimensions are reduced below 1µm. The resulting nanoscale magnetic elements are also of technological importance for a variety of industrial applications, for example magnetic recording heads and media, magnetic random access memory (MRAM) and miniaturised actuator elements.
