- Spin Hall effect in antiferromagnets (SPINORBITRONICS), OPUS 12, National Science Center (NCN), (2017 – 2020), PI: prof. dr hab. Tomasz Stobiecki, http://spinorbitronics.agh.edu.pl
The aim of the project is both theoretical and experimental investigation of hybrid antiferromagnet/ferromagnet (AFM/FM) structures for maximization of spin currents generated using spin Hall effect. Within a project, test structures consisting of different combination of buffer/AFM/FM mutlilayers will be fabricated, where the coexistence for spin-orbit torque, magnetoresistance and spin Hall effect will enable the design of a new class of spintronic circuits

The goal of this project is to conduct comprehensive research on increasing the recording density in STT-MRAM memories, using the mutiple cell control options through one transistor. The aim is to develop an appropriate way of combining unit memory cells, optimization of magnetic and material properties of layered structures, simulations of macrocells and development the prototypes macrocells devices made of optimized elemental structures.
- Fabrication and investigation of spintronics nanostructures in terms of Dynamics Induced by Spin Currents originating from spin-Orbit interaction (DISCO), SONATA 9, National Science Center (NCN), (2016-2021), PI: Witold Skowroński,
The project aims to investigate physical and magnetic properties of thin (of the order of 1 nm, that is several monoatomic layers) magnetic layer adjacent to heavy metals (such as tungsten, iridium, tantalum, platinum, etc.). The properties of very thin layers are often different and surprising compared to the ones known form a macro-scale. In particular, in case of thin magnetic layers one can change (and control) the so-called magnetic anisotropy, which is the preferred direction of magnetization using a spin-polarized current, or electric field. In addition, using the thin metal layers and passing the charge current along such a layer, in some materials one can observe spin currents (i.e., the flow of electron spin contrary to electron charge) generated in a direction perpendicular to the layer (and the charge current). This creates a unique possibilities of controlling the magnetism the magnetic system deposited on non-magnetic conductors, which can be used for information recording and storage.
