NanoMag

Introduction

NanoMag, the acronym for Magnetic Nanoparticles and Thin Films for Spintronic Applications and High Performance Permanent Magnets, is a People Marie Curie Action

IRSES (International Research Staff Exchange Scheme) project, aiming to establish a research network in the Area of magnetic nanostructured materials for novel spintronic, novel permanent magnets and biomedical applications, through collaboration and exchange of staff among six Prominent European Union Universities and Research Institutes, with four top-class laboratories, three from USA and one from Korea.

The project’s main objectives are organized in three scientific pillars:

(a) Nanopatterned Magnetic Materials, mainly transition metal oxides and Spinel Ferrites, as well as their hybrids with Molecule/Organic-based Magnets (MOM) for spintronic applications.

(b) Magnetic Nanocomposites for novel Permanent Magnets.

(c) Modified Magnetic Nanoparticles in colloids for Biomedical Applications. (learn more)

Highlights

The joint study on the magnetic properties of Bi2Se3, conducted by three members of the consortium, NCSR-D, KBSI and UIOAN, in the course of research on novel nanomagnets for spintronic applications, unveiled the presence of unexpected surface orbital magnetism on Bi-rich Bi2Se3 nanoplatelets. The results of this pioneering work enlightened new pathways for potential applications ranging from magnetic spin control and quantum computing to plasmonics and catalytic chemistry. The study which enrolled also academic staff from the Petroleum Institute (Abu Dhabi, UAE), received wide recognition from the financial press in UAE:
