Engineering topological magnetic phases in thin film heterostructures

In thin ferromagnetic films, the contribution from interface effects can give rise to novel magnetic properties not attainable in the bulk state of the ferromagnet. For example the magnetic anisotropy of the ferromagnet can be influenced by interfacing the ferromagnetic layer with other materials and allows to realize perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, which is now readily used in magnetic recording applications. In addition, the broken inversion symmetry at the interface leads to a Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction, which allows to stabilize novel topological phases in the ferromagnetic layer (e.g. Skyrmionic lattice). The goal of this master thesis is to fabricate such thin film multilayer structures using sputter deposition techniques and analyze their magnetic properties with a focus on exploring pathways to tune the interfacial effects via different material combinations and deposition conditions.

A highly motivated master student is needed to carry out these experiments on interfacial effects in metallic multilayers. The thesis work will be split up into of the fabrication of these multilayer structures as well as the experimental study of these samples. An important aspect will be the fabrication of these multilayers using UHV sputter deposition systems. In addition, broadband ferromagnetic resonance spectroscopy and SQUID magnetometry are applied to investigate the magnetic properties of the thin film hetrostructures.
