Nanoscale Magnetic Materials - Magnetic Domains

Main research interest

Collection of domains

The macroscopic magnetic properties of magnetic materials are mainly determined by their internal magnetic domain structure. Therefore, magnetic domain observation is essential for the development of magnetic materials as well as for the understanding of magnetization processes in functional magnetic devices. 

The main focus of the group is on the investigation of magnetic domain structures and the related connection to magnetization processes of various magnetic materials' samples. Another point of interest is the methodical development of magneto-optical domain investigation tools. 

Magnetic materials and magnetic nanostructures are investigated down to time scales of a few picoseconds.
