Postdoctoral researcher in physics at the Science University of Iceland, Science Institute Iceland

Postdoctoral researcher in physics at the Science - HI17040150


Position postdoctoral fellow in physics at the Science Institute is open for applications for the project: excitation of nálægðarhrifa and magnetic coupling Act of amorphous poly law. The project is funded by the Creator.



The project focuses on amorphous segulfjöllög that have been mynstruð the islands at the nanoscale. The layers have different Curie temperature and the magnetic bias direction, and the interactions between the layers provide multiple layers overall magnetic properties which differ from each layer. This feature can be conducted in various ways and the effect segulnálægðarhrifa exposed joints magnetic materials and chemical ósegulmagnaðra specifically examined in this context. The potential applications for such custom magnetic materials can be found in many areas such as sensors, evaluate materials and textile technology. Jobs postdoctoral fellow will include cultivation of thin hides and patterns as well as analysis of the structural and magnetic properties of nanomaterials Struk riding. The work will take place in nanotechnology cluster, and with international research institutes abroad.
