Abstract: 

Metamaterials are made of precisely fabricated constituents that are analogous to ‘atoms’ and ‘molecules’ in natural materials. These emerging class of metamaterials promise to fill the white space of material selection, giving enormous choice of unusual effective material parameters for different applications.

Abstract: Magnetic anisotropy originated from spin-orbit coupling is the major mechanism to stabilize the magnetism in both ferromagnets and antiferromagnets so that it plays a key role in spintronics for both industrial applications and basic research discoveries. Here, I will introduce our recent studies based on magnetic anisotropy in magnetic thin films.

AbstractSpin crossover molecules can assume a high spin and a low spin state. Typically, temperature determines which state the molecule is in. By choosing supporting substrates we stabilize the spin crossover transition outside its native temperature window and open it to isothermal manipulation by x-rays and magnetic fields.
