Abstract: Magnetic resonance (MR) measures chemical and magnetic properties and is the foundation of non-invasive detection techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Applied at the nanoscale, magnetic resonance would be capable of imaging the structure of biomolecules and of manipulating and characterizing magnetic device components. However, achieving MR with high spatial resolution is challenging due to the inherent weakness of spin coupling to inductive probes.

The quest for unlocking the elusive nature of catalytic active sites in nanometer-scale catalysts often dictates the make-up of a research team. It includes chemists, able to make well-defined nano-structures that can range from shape-controlled nanoparticles to size-selected clusters to single site catalysts. Characterization experts develop new methods, required for their atomic-level characterization in operando conditions.

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.
