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.
