SPIN-Lab addresses a range of research questions, spanning science, engineering and medicine.
Heath and well-being
Magnetic nanoparticles are used for imaging (e.g. MRI), and have a key role in future therapeutics.
Naturally occurring spins provide a path for ultra-sensitive 'spinostics'.
Leading the data revolution
We explore spin ice structures for low energy information processing and storage.
The spin-based MASER allows ultra-low noise communication for e.g. space and medical uses.
Engineering novel solutions
We aim to combine the flexibility of 'plastic electronic' devices with spin-based logic.
Spins are key in energy applications, e.g. in catalysis and magnetocalorics.
The natural world
Spins are involved in photosynthesis and are key to energy transfer processes.
Naturally occurring magnetism gives insights into geological phenomena.
