Magnetic Nanostructures for Data Storage and Biomedical Applications
Hegeman 107
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Xuemei May Cheng | Bryn Mawr College
Nanostructured materials are materials with one or more dimensions at the nanoscale (10-7-10-9 meters). Examples of nanostructured materials include 2-dimensional ultrathin films, 1-dimensional nanowires, 0-dimensional nanodots, and more complex structures that could have a combination of these characteristics. Nanostructured materials often exhibit new and enhanced properties over their bulk counterparts, so they not only offer ideal material systems for exploring fundamental physics, such as magnetic topological phases, but also hold promise for applications in data storage and biomedical engineering. In this talk, I will report our experimental work on 2D multilayers that host magnetic skyrmions, topologically protected spin textures that have promising applications in Spintronic data storage devices, as well as our work on magnetic disks that form the magnetic vortex state, useful for biomedical applications.
