nanostructured magnetic materials at Physics and Astronomy, University of Exeter

Fabrication of nanostructured magnetic materials: Ultrathin magnetic films are deposited within a four source magnetron sputtering system with DC and RF power supplies._ The system has a base pressure on the 10-10 mbar scale when sealed completely with metal gaskets while base pressures are typically on the low 10-10 mbar scale when sealed with a viton gasket for rapid changeover of substrates._ An in-situ motorized mask carousel is available for fabrication of cross-strip magnetic tunnel junctions._ The deposited films may be further patterned either by a nanosphere lithography technique capable of yielding mm sized domains, or by the electron beam lithography and focused ion beam facilities available within the Physics department.
