My research interests lie in Magnetic Materials and Photonics, with particular emphasis on high frequency processes. My research group uses a combination of microwave and time resolved optical and x-ray measurement techniques to study structural, electrical and magnetic changes in condensed matter systems. Our research is directly relevant to different forms of data storage technology, including hard disk drives, Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM) and phase change recording. Dynamic magnetic processes also underlie the operation of spintronic and magnonic devices that show great potential for use in logic and telecommunications applications.

Prof Robert J Hicken is (or has formerly been) affiliated with Physics and Astronomy, University of Exeter and University of Exeter.
