Welcome to the spintronics group at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Manitoba, Canada.
We conduct experiments investigating magnetism, spintronics, and metamaterials. Our research focus is on the interplay between spin, charge, and photon in low-dimensional systems.

Nikolai, after spending only 2.5 years working for a joint Ph. D project, successfully passed his thesis disputation at the University of Hamburg. His thesis, in which the measurement results were primarily derived during his 1-yeared visit to our group, has received the highest grade "ausgezeichnet" (0,7). The excellent thesis can be downloaded here.
