Antiferromagnetic spintronics investigated by quantum sensing techniques

Objective

This project proposes to study the processes of the antiferromagnetic materials in terms of high spatial and time resolutions in order to understand the microscopical mechanisms of the magnetization reversal. I plan to investigate the role of antiferromagnetic domains, defects, crystal grains, device boundaries and/or strain in the pioneering system of CuMnAs as well as in other novel materials. This work, by employing state-of-the-art magnetometry techniques, will provide insight into these issues, allowing for a better understanding of antiferromagnets and development of efficient antiferromagnet-based devices.
