Happy to welcome Luis Avilés, Ana SARMIENTO and José Luis AMPUERO
Thanks to the project ULTIMATE-I ( Ultra Thin Magneto Thermal Sensoring) we are happy to welcome, as you can see from left to write on the picture, Luis Avilés (researcher), Ana Sarmiento (post-doc) and José Luis Ampuero (PhD student) from Balseiro Institute in Bariloche, Argentina.
In the SPIN team, the ULTIMATE project is lead by Juan-Carlos ROJAS-SANCHEZ and Sébastien PETIT-WATELOT.
The project involve twelve partners, six beneficiaries from EU members and Associate country: Spain (UNIZAR-Zaragoza, ICN2-Barcelona, nanoGUNE-San Sebastian), France (CNRS-UMR137 Paris and UMR 7158 Nancy, Lorraine Université UL-Nancy), Serbia (Company: Senzor infiz d.o.o-Belgrade) and 6 partners from Third Countries: Argentina (CNEA– Bariloche and Buenos Aires, CONICET), Brazil (UFPE-Pernambuco), Chile (UTFSM -Valparaiso), Perú ( UNMSM-Lima), USA (NYU-New York).
In ULTIMATE, we propose to work with suitable hybrid nanostructures to improve further novel effects towards the development of new magnetic and thermal sensors. By studying hybrid nanostructured materials in which the mentioned properties are better performed, will pave a way to improve the Spin Hall magnetoresistance-based magnetic sensor and spin Seebeck effect-based temperature sensor. We have divide the strategy program into two big steps: i) From basic knowledge searching new and better materials to perform spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR) and spin Seebeck effect (SSE); and careful study of interfaces and nanostructuration that inherently could alter the magnetism and the spin transport, since magnetism is based on strong short-range correlation between electronic spin and orbital degrees of freedom; and ii) From development and application at first approximation of new materials to new designs of SSE temperature- and SMR magnetic- sensor.
