Nanomagnetism and Advanced Scattering Techniques (NaM-AST)

The Paul group research activities are focussed on addressing the fundamental aspects of interface magnetism, such as exchange bias, interlayer exchange coupling, magnetization reversal, anisotropic properties, as well as magneto-transport properties in layered materials and layered oxide heterostructures. Particular interest lies in the growth and investigation of layer resolved magnetization profiles and lateral magnetic correlations, domains etc, using polarized neutron scattering (PNR), grazing incidence X-ray and neutron scattering (GISAXS and GISANS) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS, XMCD) as the main techniques.
