Novel magnetic materials

Level begin

First-principles investigation of novel magnetic materials and structures is an active field in the developing area of Spintronics. Half-metallic Heusler alloys, ferromagnetic binary alloys, and p orbital magnetism are examples of novel magnetic systems.

We have studied surfaces and thin films of ferromagnetic Co2MnSi and Co2FeSi, Co2Cr0.5Fe0.5Al Heusler alloys, ferromagnetic binary CrAs, CrSe, CrTe, and MnSe alloys, and magnetic MnAs and MnSe nanowires. Currently, we are studying p magnetism in binary CaC, CaN, and CaAs alloys.
