Our research is focused on atomistic modelling of magnetic materials and spintroinic devices. We are particularly interested in undestanding the fundamental magnetic properties of devices for practical applications such as magnetic hyperthermia, magnetoresisitive random access memory (MRAM), heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR), exchange bias and permanent magnets. We also develop vampire, a free and open source software package for performing atomistic spin dynamics simulations.
Nanoparticles display a wide range of complex phenomena with a wdie range of potential applications.
Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM) is a new kind of low-power, non-volatile memory technology.
Permanent magnets are widely used in hybrid cars and wind turbines due to their energy efficiency.
