Scanning electron microscopy polarization analysis images of wide (a) and the narrow (c) Ferromagnetic rings, with corresponding micromagnetic simulations of the wide (b) and the narrow (d) ring, showing the vortex- and transverse-type domain walls.We are at the forefront of ultrathin magnetic film and magnetic nanostructure research. We investigate novel magnetic properties and spin-polarized electron transport phenomena in molecular beam epitaxy (MBE)-grown magnetic film structures, including ferromagnet-semiconductor hybrid structures. In particular we are exploring the fundamental electron spin-dependent transport processes which underpin the emerging field of spintronics and are pioneers in the development of nanomagnetism for biomedical applications.
