Title of the scientific project: Ferromagnetic layers with latteral distribution of Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction for application in spintronic and magnonic devices.

Principal investigator: dr hab. inż. Piotr Kuświk, prof. IFM PAN

Project description: In this project theoretical and experimental research will be performed to investigate the influence of the ion bombardment on the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) in magnetic thin films with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy.

Research objectives: The scientific goal of this project is to describe and explain the influence of ion bombardment on the DMI. The final goal is to develop a technology for local modification of DMI by focused ion beam (FIB) or ion bombardment through masks. This technology is studied to achive new magnetic materials required in spintronic and magnonics devices.
