Brief description The technological and fundamental outcomes will underpin development of spin-polarized electron dynamics in magnetic nanostructures. Electron spin dynamics offers active control and manipulation of electron spin in ultrathin films as the basis of novel technology. Potential applications are high-speed filters, sensors, quantum transistors. The surface science-based industry will find applications for manufacturing and control in nanotechnology. This project contributes to postgraduate and postdoctoral research and training to encourage excellence, with depth of knowledge in interdisciplinary research, a scientific environment providing access to research not otherwise in Australia, and experience in construction of scientific instruments.
