The project concerns the use of compositionally graded films to study the intrinsic and extrinsic magnetic properties of hard magnetic materials. Emphasis will be placed on two rare earth transition metal families of overall composition RFe12 and R2T14B (where R is the rare earth, T is a transition metal).


A combination of composition variation, deposition conditions and post-deposition annealing conditions will be used to control the size and shape of the main phase grains and the distribution of secondary phases. Structural analysis (XRD, SEM, TEM, EBSD...) will be combined with magnetic characterisation (VSM-SQUID, MFM, scanning-MOKE...). The impact of the microstructure of the extrinsic magnetic properties will be modelled.


The candidate must hold a PhD and have a solid background in magnetism. Prior experience in hard magnetic film deposition, structural and magnetic characterization and micromagnetic simulations is essential.
