The overall strategy of our laboratory is in depth understanding of magnetism in condensed matter with a good balance between state-of-the-art research, development of new instruments, and applications. This equilibrium is possible in this field where applications and research are very close.
The research activity in nanomagnetism started in the group in 1994 with the nanofabrication and the characterization of submicron magnetic dots. In 1998, the investigation of magnetization dynamics and the development of spin electronic sensors began. The development of magnetic devices (magnetic tunnel junctions, spin-valves, spin filters and more recently multiferroic materials) are of great interest for spintronic applications, and, in particular, for the development of ultra-sensitive magnetometers for magnetophysiology, IRM, nanometrology, etc. The combination of superconductivity and magnetism, in bulk and thin film oxides have enriched this field.
More recently, the development of highly controllable oxide thin films growth made possible the development of a new topic, hydrogen production by water splitting using metal oxides semiconductors as photo-anodes.

SINGLE CRYSTALS AND CERAMICS: SYNTHESIS AND PROPERTIES
The group has developed several lines of research concerning the synthesis, physico-chemical characterization and study of the physical properties (magnetic and transport) of superconducting cuprates, of multiferroic oxides and more recently of the iridates.
