Spintronics Home Page – Heiman Lab

Heiman’s research focuses on several challenging and technologically important areas.

  • topological insulators and semimetals
  • antiferromagnetic and altermagnetic materials
  • novel magnetic materials for spintronic devices
  • magnetic 2D layers

The group’s primary experimental tools include:

  • molecular beam epitaxy (MBE)
  • physical vapor deposition crystal growth (magnetron sputtering)
  • ultrasensitive SQUID magnetometry
  • electrical transport in high magnetic fields

Research is in collaboration with several dozen institutions including MIT, the US Naval Academy, and LPS-Maryland.
