Magnetic interactions between nanoparticles

The size of each magnetic element in magnetic storage devices becomes smaller quickly since larger data storage has been demanded in information technology. Therefore it is important to understand magnetic influence from neighbouring elements. Electron microscopy can visualise their magnetic interactions directly at the nanometre scale. In the project we use magnetic iron-oxide nanoparticles, which have been used for recording media and medical applications, to study nanoscale magnetic interactions experimentally using electron microscopes as well as theoretically using commercially available micromagnetic simulation software. The balance between the experiment and simulation depends on the student(s)
