SPINTRONICS & NANOMAGNETICS GROUP
Nanomagnetism Group Profs. Don Heiman
and Laura Lewis
Electronic Materials Institute Prof. Sri Sridhar
Nanomaterials Instrument Facility Prof. Don Heiman
Professor Heiman's research group focuses on several challenging and technologically important areas:
- Topological insulators and semimetals
- Heusler magnetic semiconductors
- Spintronic materials and devices
- Molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) crystal growth
The group's experimental tools include MBE apparatus, magnetotransport and magneto-optics up to 14 tesla, SEM, SQUID magnetometer, etc.
Making Graphene Spin - Fabricating graphene devices with a magnetic layer produces giant magnetic properties for the electrons.
