Mission Magnetic Thin Film Systems

Our research activities on magnetic multilayer systems are primarily curiosity-driven, but aim at applications for sensor, transducers, and magnetic thin film particles for bio-medical applications. For the fabrication of these systems we use state-of-the-art UHV sputter deposition systems, partially equipped with facing target sources made available to us by one of our industrial research partners. Apart from standard analytical equipment for structural and chemical analysis, and vibrating sample magnetometry, we draw a competitive advantage from our home-built, world-wide unique high-resolution and high-sensitivity magnetic force microscopy systems.
