Building of  Institute of Magnetism

General Information

The Institute of Magnetism (IMag) is the country's leading scientific organization on magnetic phenomena in solids and innovative magnetic materials. Being founded in 1995 on the basis of three departments of the Institute of Metal Physics and one department of the Institute of Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Ore Formation, IMag remains one the newest research institutions of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Main areas of scientific investigation include physics of magnetic phenomena, resonance phenomena in solids, magnetic properties of heterogeneous and multilayer thin films, nanocrystalline systems, magnetic systems with martensite phase transitions, solid state theory, and mathematical physics. The Institute provides scientific expertise in the fields concerned with the development of novel materials with a special emphasis on ultra-thin layered and modulated films, nanocrystalline structures, single crystals, and shape memory materials.

Institute’s Focus

Experimental facilities include a wide range of equipment for fabrication, characterization, and investigation of multicomponent and multilayer thin film structures with advanced magnetic, magnetoresistive, and magnetoacoustic properties. Among the many areas of activities carried out at the Institute one should draw particular attention to the latest efforts on the experimental and theoretical research into giant magnetoresistance in heterogeneous and multilayer structures. Of particular interest are also the results of the works on the study of colossal magnetoresistance in the structures based on doped perovskite manganites, as well as activities on the development of magnetic nanostructures for the ultrahigh-density information storage.

Applied research includes development of high-precision measurement devices, as well as novel technologies for fabrication of materials with controllable properties. Studies of interlayer, inter-atomic and superfine interactions in ultra-thin layered and modulated films resulted in the development of a film deposition technology to provide materials for magnetic recording electronics and optical storage of information.

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

Traditionally close ties exist with the Institute of Physics, the Institute of Metal Physics, Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering, Lashkaryov Institute of Semiconductor Physics, the Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry, as well as with counterparts in Russia (Institute of Metal Physics, Ekaterinburg; Lomonosov Moscow State University).

The Institute has participated in a number of projects funded by the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, CRDF, STCU. International scientific cooperation includes project-based partnerships with collaborators from the USA (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Alabama; University of New Orleans), United Kingdom (University of Plymouth), Germany (Hannover Laser Centre).

Institute of Magnetism is a participant of the Russian-Ukrainian Intergovernmental Program on Nanophysics and Nanoelectronics, project title: Physics of magnetic nanostructures with giant magnetoresistive effect.
