Phd Position – QuMat.1-UU-2.3E
Exploring 2D magnetism in novel van der Waals materials

Van der Waals (vdW) materials are highly anisotropic materials consisting of layers bonded by weak vdW interactions that allow for the possibility to be cleaved into very thin specimens, down to a monolayer thickness, which makes them the ideal platform for exploring magnetism in the 2D limit.

This project will focus on the synthesis and structural characterization of various compounds, as well as on studying their magnetic properties using both bulk and scanning probe techniques through national and international collaborations.

Advanced spectroscopy of complex magnetism

We will look at the emergence of complex magnetic order in rare-earth films and ascertain the role of spin orbit coupling and magnetic exchange. We will explore the presence of topological magnons as well as fundamentally new types of quasiparticle excitations, such as fractons. We will aim at manipulating this order, with laser fields, in order to quantify how we can utilize these materials for magnetic memory and low-energy spin transfer.
