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.

Abstract: Developments in synthesis and characterizing artificially structured materials have greatly advanced the possibility to explore new quantum states of matter at heterointerfaces. Atomically resolved electron microscopy and spectroscopy has been shown to hold the key to identify the structural, compositional and electronic behavior across the interfaces with atomic precision. This is especially crucial for complex oxides system since subtle variation in order parameters will give rise to totally unexpected phenomena.
