Welcome to the homepage of Mizukami Laboratory, Spintronics
field of Advanced Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University.
I introduce briefly our research field. Detailed research content will
be given at Research section.
Investigations on microscopic and macroscopic properties of magnetic materials,
occurrence mechanism of functionality in materials, and research and development
of devices based on these materials are in active progress. Strong emphasis
has been made for the@development of high-technology devices, which are
realized by the phenomena caused by an interplay of spin, or magnetic moment
of the materials and their electrical conduction. These researches are
relying on a positive utilization of the two degrees of freedom in electron,
spin and charge. Beyond the framework of traditional style of research
in magnetic materials, we are making various kinds of investigations in
search of new and highly functionalized magnetic materials through fusion
research. Our mottos are "inorganic to organic", "macroscopic
to microscopic", and vice versa.
Research theme running now in our group:
1. Development of new Heusler and related alloys films with perpendicular
magnetic anisotropy and other functions for device platform, in particular
2. Spin dynamics for various new magnetic materials using ULTRAFAST LASER
and MICROWAVE techniques.
3. Spintronics devices, such as magnetic tunnel junctions, for Green
Technology, such as MAGNETIC RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY.
4. Magnetic Metals and organic molecule Hybrid Devices.
