PhD: Magnetic Correlations in Artificial Spin Systems

Updated: 6 days ago

The Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems, based at the Paul Scherrer Institute, is a joint laboratory between the ETH Zurich and the PSI. One scientific focus of the group is to study artificial spin systems consisting of arrays of magnetically coupled nanomagnets. The nanomagnets are arranged on periodic and aperiodic lattices, and display several fascinating phenomena including emergent magnetic monopoles, phase transitions, chirality and frustration. To expand our current research on artificial spin systems we are looking for a PhD Student to study "Magnetic Correlations in Artificial Spin Systems".

The remit of this project is to:

• Fabricate magnetic nanostructures with electron beam lithography
• Study magnetic correlations in artificial spin systems with synchrotron based imaging and scattering techniques
• Perform micromagnetic and Monte Carlo simulations to support the experimental results.
