Magnetic Single Crystals and Epitaxial Films

The development of innovative magnetic materials from volume crystals to single crystalline functional layers, is the subject of our current research and development tasks.
The following materials are currently in the foreground:

  • Single crystalline epitaxial functional layers (iron garnet films)
  • Single crystalline volume crystals (iron garnets, hexaferrites)

Typical areas of application for these materials are:

  • Magneto-optics (sensor layers for magneto-optical visualization processes)
  • Microwave devices (YIG epitaxial films, ferrite crystals)
  • Spin wave devices (sub-micrometer YIG epitaxial films)

Magnetic Nano- and Composite Materials

We have many years of experience in the development of magnetic materials tailored to your needs, such as:

  •     Magnetic polymers, e.g. magnetic shielding foils, magnetic printing pastes
  •     Magnetic nano- and microparticles
  •     Magneto-rheological fluids (ferrofluids)
