Research topics

Magnetic materials
Snorri Ingvarsson, Unnar Arnalds, Friðrik Magnus.
Several different resarch projects on the magnetic properties of materials, thin films and nanostructures are ongoing at the University of Iceland. These projects include work on understanding the crystalline anisotropy inherent in magnetic materials, investigations on coupling in multilayered magnets and on artificial spin ice systems.

Transition metal oxides and nitrides
Friðrik Magnus, Unnar Arnalds, Jón T. Guðmundsson.
Nitrides and oxides based on transition metals have a vast range of properties ranging from catalytic activity, use as hard coatings, and exhibit structural, metal insulator and optical transitions.

Gate dielectrics for SiC devices
Einar Sveinbjörnsson.
The project concerns growth and characterization of novel dielectrics for use in SiC power MOSFET transistors.

Corrosion resistant and tribological materials and coatings
Friðrik Magnus, Unnar Arnalds, Arni S. Ingason.
Thin film coatings provide a means for drastically altering the properties of materials and objects. Films of only a few nanometer thickness can provide increased hardness, corrosion resistance or alter the optical properties of components affecting their lifetime and creating new possibilities in industrial applications.  

Plasma physics
Jón T. Guðmundsson.

Mössbauer spectroscopy
Hafliði P. Gíslason, Bingcui Qi.
Application of 57*Fe emission Mössbauer spectroscopy (eMS) in collaboration with the ISOLDE facility at CERN allows the study the intrinsic and defect-induced exotic electronic, magnetic and structural properties of the transition metal based nitride and oxide thin films fabricated at the University of Iceland.
