Spintec has developed a strong expertise in the fields of temperature-dependent magnetic and transport properties, sub-nanosecond magnetization dynamics, high frequency noise and near field magnetic probing. The laboratory is equipped with numerous experimental set-ups, whether home made or commercial, which allow characterizing any system from the laboratory sample to the wafer-level test device. Pictures show some of our experimental set-ups.

- Perpendicular-shape-anisotropy MRAM do not fear temperature (September 01st, 2022)
Perpendicular-shape-anisotropy magnetic random-access memory (PSA MRAM) has been proposed to maintain the thermal stability of solid-state magnetic bits down to a few nanometers in diameter. Here we confirm directly with high-spatial resolution and high-sensitivity electron ...
- PEPR SPIN – Priority Programs and Equipment for Exploratory Research (July 29th, 2022)
France is investing more than 38M€ in Spintronics thanks to the PEPR-SPIN exploratory program! SPIN is among the 13 new exploratory programs winners of the second wave of calls for projects Priority Programs and ...
- Designing magnetic memory with improved retention and writability (April 08th, 2022)
Magnetic Random Access Memory recently started to be commercialized by all main microelectronics factories. In MRAM, the information is coded via parallel or antiparallel magnetic configurations to represent ones and zeroes. The technology is intrinsically ...
- Biocompatible magnetic microparticles for cancer cells destruction (February 04th, 2022)
We present a new type of biocompatible surface-functionalized magnetic microparticles for cancer cells destruction. The magnetite particles, covered with polyethylene glycol molecules, are shown to favor cell-death via apoptosis when set into vibrations by alternating ...
- A new spintronic memristive component for neuromorphic circuits (November 18th, 2021)
Neuromorphic computing is a bio-inspired technology which aims at mimicking the brain working principles. It can be used for fast and energy-efficient applications through the implementation of networks of artificial neurons and synapses. Artificial synapses ...
