Research Lines

The group focuses the interests on solid state physics and material science of low dimensional magnetic materials, covering epitaxial growth, surface/interface and magnetotransport characterization, nanofabrication. In particular:

  1. Disentangling magnetoresistance responses in magnetic nanostructures: magnetization reversal vs.spin- dependent transport; magnetic anisotropies (in-plane vs. perpendicular); Magnetoresistive effects: AMR, GMR, CMR, Spin Hall effects; Symmetries and asymmetries of Spin-Orbit effects.
  2. Development of new hybrid (inorganic-organic) magnetic nanostructures: growth of artificial magnetic nanostructures; molecular spintronic and graphene-based magnetic nanostructures; exchange bias, spin valves, tunnel junctions, perovskite oxides.
  3. Functional oxide interfaces: high-k dielectric, half-metallic, ferroelectric and multiferroic perovskites.
  4. Polarization dependent element-resolved x-ray spectroscopy and microscopy studies: X-ray magnetic circular/linear dichroism, XMCD/ XMLD, & resonant magnetic reflectivity, XRMR X-ray photoemission electron micros- copy, magnetic holography imaging.
