Technology of Preparation of Ultrathin Superconducting Nanostructures for Spintronic


Elaborated advanced technology for superconducting spintronics - technological process, based on magnetron sputtering of the metallic films with non-metallic protective layers, yields significant improvement in superconducting properties of thin Nb films and Nb/CuNi nanostructures in comparison with common methods of films deposition (Fig.1).

The developed advanced technological process is patented (Patent RM №.175 from 31.03.2010).

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

Thanks to our technology, we can sputter a whole lot of samples with a strictly reproducible parameters in a single cycle of deposition.

The first experimental observation of the double re-entrant superconductivity in superconductor/ ferromagnetic nanostructures (Nb/Cu41Ni59 bilayers) in dependence on the thickness of the ferromagnetic layer (Fig.2) (Published in : A.S. Sidorenko, V.I. Zdravkov, J. Kehrle, R.Morari, E.Antropov, G. Obermeier, S. Gsell, M. Schreck, C. Muller, V.V. Ryazanov, S. Horn, R. Tidecks, L.R. Tagirov. Extinction and Recovery of Superconductivity by Interference in Superconductor/ Ferromagnet Bilayers. In book: Nanoscale Phenomena – Fundamentals and Applications,Ed. by H.Hahn, A.Sidorenko, I.Tiginyanu, Springer, 2009 p.1-10.) was found on our samples.

Technology of passivation allows to save samples of the initial characteristics of nanolayers for a long time.

Areas of Application
