Description of potential projects for CINEMA applicants: Control of Magnetism in hybrid systems: fabrication and characterization of heterostructures (thin films) of ferromagnetic metals and materials which undergo a metal to insulator transition (V oxides, Ti oxides, Fe oxides and other). We are interested in studying the changes in the properties of ferromagnetic layers in proximity to the oxides undergoing the metal to insulator transitions.
