Project description

The project focuses on antiferromagnetic thin films and will systematically study their magnetic and transport properties, either as single films or embedded within a multilayer comprising other magnetic layers. This goal will be achieved through a combination of electron transport measurements, spin lattice calculations and two powerful and complementary synchrotron-based x-ray techniques.
