Welcome to Quantum Nano-Scale Magnetism Team Website

Otani group in ISSP at the University of Tokyo and the Quantum Nano-Scale Magnetism Research Team in Center for Emergent Matter Science at RIKEN are conducting researches on spintronics in a mutulally complementary manner.

Nano-scale magnets can have, according to their shape and size, ordered domain structures such as magnetic vortices and single-domains. Using experimental and theoretical approaches, we study static and dynamical magnetic properties of nano-scale magnets, to obtain a better understanding of the quantum behavior associated with domain wall displacement and magnetization reversal. Moreover, we employ spin injection techniques using nano-scale magnets as electrodes which provide spin-polarized current. This spin-injection induced magnetism will be applied to the development of spintronic devices.
