Nanoscale field mapping in functional materials

Project: Research

Project Description

This project aims to develop tools to map electric and magnetic fields within matter on smaller length scales than
has previously been possible. Such fields are used for encoding information in data storage microelectronic
devices. Since the world now generates more data than it can store, the search is on for new technologies to
improve storage capacity and energy efficiency by encoding information at the smallest possible length scales. It
is anticipated that the new characterisation techniques resulting from this project will enable academic and
industrial researchers working on the next generation of data storage technology to solve problems they could not
otherwise solve.
