  • Artificial Syntheses and Characterizations of Nanmagnetic Materials
  • Magnetic Anisotropy and Magneto-Optical Phenomena
  • Magnetic Domain Observations and Domain Reversal Dynamics
  • Spin-Dependent Electron Transport Phenomena

  • Lab. Info.
    The goal of the lab. is to establish nanomagnetism as well as to develop novel spintronic materials through studying the domain configurations and spin dynamics in nanomagnetic materials, so called "nanospinics." To achieve this goal, various nanomagnetic materials including nano-scaled thin films, nanodots and arrays, and molecular magnets are artificially synthesized, and ultrasensitive structural, magnetic, magnoto-optical, and domain-dynamic measurement techniques are developed.
  • Magnetic Anisotropy and Magneto-optical Phenomena
    Origins of magnetic anisotropy in nanomagnetic materials are investigated with particular interests in spin reorientation transition depending on the structure. Also, magneto-optical effects in perpendivularly anisotropy magnetic materials are extensivelystudied for develpment of ultrahigh-density novel magneto-optical recording materials
  • Magnetic Domain Observations and Domain Reversal Dynamics
    Research is carrid out with focus on three fundamental issues such as(1)domain configurations and spin orientations in the ground state,(2)domain reversal mechanism under external conditions, and(3)possibility of macroscopic quantim effcts. These issues are not only provide the essential knowlegde for establishment of nanomagnetism but also answer for the ultimate limitations of storage density, switching speel, and archival time of spintronic devices.
  • Spin-Dependent Electon Transport Phenomena
    Spin-dependent electron transport properties are intensively investigated in both spinvalve systems composed of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic films and magnetic tunnel junctions of two ferro magnetic films separated by insulating materials for developments of novel MRAM(Magnetics Random Access Memory) materials in the 21C.
