Project Description

Magnets play a sometimes overlooked but nevertheless critical role in our society; from computer memories and medical imaging to power generation and energy recovery, they are archetypes of our technological prowess. In this framework, developing eco-friendly magnetic materials while discovering new functionalities becomes key to our lifestyle. For example, the carbon footprint due to data storage in the internet already exceeds that of air travel, and it doubles every year. We have generated more information in the last two years than in the whole of the previous history of humankind. In this project, and with a network of international collaborators, the student will research the use nanocarbon materials such as fullerenes and amorphous carbon (a-C) using electric and optic signals to control the spin states of the molecules. The objective is to obtain magneto-electric and magneto-optic coupling in nanocarbon with the goal of designing new hybrid memories made of cheap, light and hazardless elements.
