Engineering magnetism at the atomic scale in topological insulators

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA)

Abstract


  • This project aims to explore strategies to optimise the magnetisation and Curie temperature by incorporating dopants via ion implantation, and exploiting proximity effects in heterostructures with magnetic thin films. The recently discovered magnetism in topological insulators opens up a new class of materials with potential applications in energy-efficient electronics, data storage and information processing. The central challenges are to control the underlying magnetic structure and stabilise magnetic order at desirable temperatures. The project expects to discover new composite materials and advance our knowledge for designing magnetic components in the next generation of electronics with ultra-low power dissipation.
