TAMING THE ELECTRON SPIN IN NANODEVICES
Our research aims at the exploration and exploitation of physical phenomena at the nanometer scale by manipulating the spin-dependent and magnetic properties and structure. Focus is on novel concepts that are of potential relevance for future nanoelectronics. Research themes include ultra-high capacity, ultra-fast and energy-efficient solutions for future memory and logic, integrated nanophotonics, magnetic sensors for automotive, high-tech engineered nanosystems, and magnetic nanoparticles for the health domain.Read more

Two new PhD positions available
We currently have two open PhD positions within the NanoPhotonic Integration Gravitation program of NWO, both focus on using chiral magnetic textures for next generation data and information technologies. Please apply or share by clicking this <link> for a position regarding chiral domain walls, and this <link> regarding chiral magnetization mapping.
All positions are open from May 15, 2019, and are open only to female candidates in the framework of the new Irène Curie Fellowship program of TU/e. Review of applications will begin immediately upon receipt, and continue until the positions are filled, with the last date for applications being November 15, 2019.
Please check out the TU/e Vacancies page for further opportunities within our group.
Even if no explicit vacancies are available, excellent candidates are stimulated sending an application letter with CV. We are particularly interested in highly talented students who (nearly) completed their Master of Science in Experimental/Applied Physics and outstanding PostDoc candidates with a (nearly or recently) finished PhD with top-performance in spintronics, ultrafast magnetization dynamics and/or nanomagnetism. Please contact any of the scientific staff members or secretary Karin Jansen, c.a.m.jansen@ for further information. tue.nl
Meet some of our Researchers
Although curiosity driven, our research is generically inspired by potential future applications. We strive to contribute to major societal and economic themes ranging from Green ICT to smart mobility, and from materials for society to high-tech systems. In all our approaches nanotechnology is key in providing novel solutions, by engineering materials and devices at the nanometer scale. Our research is well positioned on the Dutch and European research agendas. It is well aligned with the Dutch top sector high-tech systems, but also has links to energy and life sciences and health. Several questions starring prominently on the National Research Agenda, launched early 2016, are actively addressed by our researchers, such as: How can we exploit quantum physics in enabling spectacular, novel applications? Can we design smart materials with advanced properties? And, what will be the impact of the quantum internet? – many of them grouped in the overarching routes 'Quantum/nano revolution' and 'Materials - made in Holland'Read more
