"So, in the face of overwhelming odds, I’m left with only one option: I’m going to have to science the shit out of this." Mark Watney, The Martian

 

We work in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology; more specifically, in novel mechanisms for control of magnetization at the nanoscale.

We are setting up new sample growth techniques (Sputtering and PLD systems) and advanced characterization methods. We have in the lab a 14T Superconducting magnet (Oxford), a Helium Liquefier (Quantum Design, to arrive), a VSM (Lakeshore) and multiple stations with electronics.
