Abstract:

In this project, we have fabricated arrays of nanomagnets and characterized them for use as patterned media for high-density magnetic storage and as magnonic crystals in the microwave range. The nanomagnet arrays have been formed by electrodeposition in templates with feature sizes in the sub-100nm range using an electrodeposition system bought as part of this project. We have modelled the dynamic switching of the magnetizations in these arrays, and also done preliminary microwave absorption experiments on the nanowire arrays.
