Nanomagnetism and Spintronics

Short Name: NanoSpin, Project Number: T4.J02
When starting the project in the field of nanomagnetism and spintronics, exciting new developments are under way in applications ranging from ultra strong magnets, spin polarized materials, ultra high density recording media, such as hard disks, flash memories/MRAM, spin transistors or spin-based qubits, leading to potential mass market products such as the instant boot computer, computer in a test tube and ubiquitous DNA- and bio-sensors.

All these developments and potential mass markets urgently required measurement tools to reliably characterize magnetic nanomaterials and structures with verified traceability to existing standards: at that time were very few producers of magnetic nanostructures and nanomaterials who are able to provide them.

The goal of the project was to deliver measurement methods and reference samples for industrial stakeholders and scientific partners.
