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.

- Millimeter-scale layered MoSe2 grown on sapphire and evidence for negative magnetoresistance (April 14th, 2017)
We have fabricated large-scale two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide (2D TMD) MoSe2, a promising candidate for electronics, valley-spintronics and optoelectronics, on insulating sapphire and have investigated its structural and transport properties. We have shown that the ...
- Magneto-optical micromechanical systems for magnetic field mapping (February 17th, 2017)
Magnetic field mapping techniques have continuously been developed due to the necessity for determining the spatial components of local magnetic fields in many industrial applications and fundamental research. Several factors are considered for sensors such ...
- Evidence for spin-to-charge conversion by Rashba coupling in metallic states at the Fe/Ge(111) interface (January 09th, 2017)
We have demonstrated the spin-to-charge interconversion by Rashba coupling at the interface between two light materials: iron and germanium which is compatible with today’s CMOS technology. This result constitutes the first step towards the fabrication ...
- Comparison of the use of NiFe and CoFe as electrodes for metallic lateral spin valves (May 17th, 2016)
A CoFe based ferromagnetic alloy has been used in lateral spin valves to replace NiFe alloys, which are overwhelmingly exploited as ferromagnets electrodes in lateral spintronic devices. By using this second material, emitted signals are ...
