3D magnetic nanostructures offer potential for spintronic devices
3D magnetic nanostructures possess unconventional spin and topological properties that render them very promising for use in future multi-functional technologies such as spintronics – the field that exploits both the charge and spin of electrons in solid-state devices. So far, most studies in the field have been restricted to computational and theoretical work as current fabrication techniques face challenges in producing proper 3D geometries and spin configurations. Using recently developed 3D nano-printing and magneto-optical tools, the EU-funded 3DNANOMAG project will carry out the first experimental investigation in advanced nanomagnetic systems with various complex 3D geometries, multi-layered materials and chiral spin configurations. Experimental work will be complemented with state-of-the-art magnetic microscopy and simulation techniques.
