Research Interests

  • My research activities focus on magnetic materials used for information storage. My aim is to relate between material structure (crystallographic, chemical and electronic) and the magneto-transport properties of the device.
  • The materials characterization is achieved mostly by analytical and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. In addition, Lorentz electron microscopy is used in order to image the micromagnetic structure at the nanometer scale.
  • In recent years, I have focused on MgO-based magnetic tunnel junctions; exchange-bias ; amorphous ferromagnetic thin films; Heusler alloys ; development of Lorentz TEM methodologies for magnetic imaging.
