Development of Heusler alloy films

Development of Heusler alloy films for magneto-optical and spintronic applications

Dr. Indranil Sarkar's group has developed a novel method based on the electrodeposition technique to realize highly crystalline thin films of high spin polarization Heusler compounds that are thermodynamically difficult to achieve using the conventional physical vapor deposition method. This novel class of spintronic materials shows a high degree of magneto-optical response comparable to conventional magnetic alloys. This opens up a great opportunity to realize new classes of spintronic platforms.
