Title :Towards Three Dimensional nanomaterials and devices

Abstract : he expansion of nanotechnology to three dimensions provides exciting opportunities to explore new physical phenomena and opens great prospects to create 3D devices for future computing technologies [1-2]. In this talk, I will present some of our recent works dedicated to the investigation of three dimensional artificial magnetic nanomaterials, including multilayered and complex-shaped geometries.

First, I will show how chiral spin interactions can be established in between neighbouring ferromagnetic layers separated by a thin metallic interlayer. This “interlayer DMI” interaction results in chiral exchange bias effect in synthetic antiferromagnets, and can be exploited as a tuneable symmetry-breaking effect for spintronic devices, and potentially to generate 3D chiral spin textures spanning across layers in multi-layered heterostructures [3,4].
The second part of the talk will provide an overview of the new methods we have developed to study 3D magnetic circuits patterned via focused-electron-beam-based 3D printing [5], and some of the new functionalities obtained exploiting 3D geometries. This includes the creation of localized spin textures, topological defects and stray fields [6-7], the automotive motion of domain walls [8], and the presence of unconventional magnetotransport effects [9]. Potential applications of these 3D methods to areas such as spintronics, magnonics or superconductivity will be discussed.

I would like to thank all my group members and collaborators contributing to the work I will be presenting.
