Project: SONOMA

SOnder les naNOmatériaux MAgnétiques

The SONOMA project (2019-2022) aims to enable the Jean Lamour Institute (IJL) to become a reference centre in Europe for the characterisation of magnetic nanomaterials. It is carried jointly by the CC Magnetism and Cryogenics, and teams 101, 102 and 103. The reinforcement of the IJL’s instrument park with three tools for tip characterization (SQUID-VSM magnetometer, wafer-based electrical measurement station with 3D magnetic field and Microscope/Tunnel Spectrometer under magnetic field) will in particular accelerate all fundamental science and R&D projects in this field. Examples include projects for the study and development of nanoparticles for the detection of pollutants and the fight against cancer, new low-dimensional systems for electronics and sensors, 4D printed magnets, magnetic printer processes.
