Postdoctoral Fellow

Artificial Spin Ice

Your tasks

  • To manufacture artificial spin ice using nanofabrication methods
  • To characterise the magnetic properties of the prepared samples with labbased measurement techniques and large scale facilities, including synchrotron X-rays and low energy muon spectroscopy, at the PSI and worldwide
  • To work on one of the following research topics:
    - Computation & spintronics with artificial spin ice
    - 3D artificial spin ice
    - Magnetic correlations in artificial spin systems
