Research topics:

Our research focuses on the fabrication, characterization and functionalization of III-nitride magnetic semiconductors for spintronic applications. Spintronics is an emerging technology that exploits not only the charge, but also the intrinsic spin of charge carriers. The synthesis of a homogeneous ferromagnetic semiconductor operating above room temperature is an open and major challenge and its realization is expected to represent a break-through in spintronic nanotechnology. In the MagicSpin Group, we study mainly Fe and Mn doped GaN grown by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE). We have access in house to structural (HRTEM, HRXRD), as well as optical characterization (PL, Raman) and nanofabrication clean room facilities. A network of collaborations with international research groups specialized in advanced electron microscopy, magnetic measurements and theory complements our research. We perform regularly synchrotron-radiation experiments, necessary for an in-depth understanding of the fundamental properties of our materials.
