Imperial College London
Research Project: Nanoscale and GHz characterisation of novel superconducting spintronic interfaces
Supervisors: Lesley Cohen (Imperial), Hide Kurebayashi (UCL)
Alex graduated with a MPhys in Physics from the University of York. His masters project looked at techniques to grow graphene and characterise the effects of doping with various atoms; which is possibly useful in spintronic applications. Alex’s PhD project looks at incorporating superconductors with spintronic applications, aiming to combine their lucrative properties which may be used for quantum computers. Alex’s first aim is to characterise the way spin is propagated between Nb/Fe interfaces.
