Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to build a deposition chamber dedicated to the fabrication of magnetic thin films and thin film structures to study electron transport and interactions in magnetic tunnel junctions and nanostructures. The laboratory of the PI has the capabilities for the deposition of conventional non-magnetic metals and a laser ablation system for the deposition of oxide metals and superconductors, but as the interest have been moving toward the interactions of metals and superconductors with magnetic materials, a system exclusively committed to this end was requested and built.
