NanOsc Instruments displayed the latest additions to its product line of broadband FMR spectrometers, the PhaseFMR-8 for room temperature measurements, and the CryoFMR-8 for variable temperature measurements. These entry level FMR spectrometers with advanced analysis capabilities are excellent for physics education and materials research. The easy to use software provides Lorentzian curve fitting and parameter extraction for both in-plane and out-of-plane analysis of thin films giving the gyromagnetic ratio, saturation magnetization, damping, inhomogeneous broadening, and anisotropy.
Our world-wide distributor Quantum Design, Inc. has installed the first PhaseFMR in India.
We make FMR easy with a very user-friendly software that controls the measurements and extracts important static and dynamic magnetic properties through Kittel function fitting and damping analysis.
The first CryoFMR for China is shipped out. This spectrometer will be used with a Quantum Design Versalab cryostat to provide fast, easy-to-use, and reliable FMR measurements down to 50 K.
NanOsc Instruments ships the first CryoFMR to be installed in South Korea. The spectrometer will be used together with a Quantum Design PPMS for cryogenic FMR analysis.
NanOsc enters the large Chinese material science market with its first shipment to this country of a PhaseFMR spectrometer. The end customer is a major university.
The next continent to experience FMR made easy by using an FRM spectrometer from NanOsc is South America. We have now sold and delivered PhaseFMR and CryoFMR instruments to three continents.
Following orders in 2014, NanOsc AB has now shipped its first two PhaseFMR-40 FMR spectrometers to customers in Sweden and the US. The PhaseFMR-40 is the first commercial turn-key FMR spectrometer offering a continuous frequency range from 2 to 40 GHz and allows users to study a wider range of materials or determine the gyromagnetic ratio and the damping with higher accuracy.
NanOsc has won a significant R&D grant on Graphene Spintronics in Vinnova's Strategic Innovation Area "SIO Grafen". Among the seven funded projects, NanOsc's "Graphene based microwave signal generators" received the most funding (~€100,000) and has an enormous potential to revolutionize how wideband (1-100 GHz) microwave signals can be generated, modulated and detected in future graphen based microwave devices.
Purpose and Objective
Demonstrate and optimize the spin current focusing in graphene. Demonstrate the use of graphene based spin current focusing in spintronic oscillators.
Impact and results
The project will make use of graphene's outstanding spin coherence length to drive spintronic nano-oscillators at microwave frequencies. The project has an enormous potential to revolutionize how wideband (1-100 GHz) microwave signals can be generated, modulated and detected in future graphen based microwave devices.
Planned design and implementation
The project allows NanOsc to collaborate with Sweden's strongest players in graphene spin currents (Chalmers) and spintronic nano-oscillators (University of Gothenburg). The project is a collaboration between these three parties which all contribute their respective expertise in materials, material characterization, lithography, spin wave microscopy and microwave measurements.
