Spintronics and magnetic manipulation

Professor: Dan Ralph

Dan RalphProject Description: What is the most efficient possible way to reorient the magnetic moment direction in nanoscale magnetic devices?  The Ralph group is exploring new physical mechanisms and new types of device structures for magnetic manipulation, by utilizing spin-polarized electrical currents and spin-orbit interactions.  Summer projects will involve assisting in the fabrication of devices in which atomic-layer materials are integrated with ultra-thin magnetic layers, and then using electrical measurements, optical experiments, and computer modeling to understand current-induced torques and magnetic switching.
