The goal of this project is to study spintronics at very short time-scales. For this, we will focus on the spin-orbit torque, and use picosecond-wide electrical pulses. This work will be a continuation of our recently published article in Nature Electronics [K. Jhuria et al., Nat. Elec 2020].
The candidate will take the lead in clean room micro/nano-fabrication, sample characterization (magnetic and transport) and will wotk with the pump-probe setup.
The candidate is expected to have a good understanding of basic physics, particularly in the fields of optics, electronics and magnetism. This project involves a lot of technical work, and will thus require the candidate to have a deep understanding of the instrumentation and metrologie in place. The candidate will be trained, but will have to become quickly independent and proactive in terms of ideas and solutions.
The Institut Jean Lamour (IJL) is a joint research unit (UMR 7198) of CNRS and Université de Lorraine It is linked to the Institute of Chemistry of CNRS.
Focused on materials and processes science and engineering, it covers: materials, metallurgy, plasmas, surfaces, nanomaterials and electronics.
It regroups 183 researchers/lecturers, 91 engineers/technicians/administrative staff, 150 doctoral students and 25 post-doctoral fellows.
Partnerships exist with 150 companies and our research groups collaborate with more than 30 countries
throughout the world.
Its exceptional instrumental platforms are spread over 4 sites; the main one is located on Artem campus in Nancy.
The study will be carried at the Institut Jean Lamour, in Nancy (France), in the SPIN team (Spintronics and nanomagnetism team : https://spin.ijl.cnrs.fr), under the funding ANR JCJC SPOTZ (https://spin.ijl.cnrs.fr/projects/spotz).
