Our Group

Mesoscopic Systems is a joint laboratory between the Department of Materials, ETH Zurich and Paul Scherrer Institute, which addresses new frontiers in the field of magnetism. We design nanoscale magnetic systems with novel properties to understand the basic laws of science. These tiny systems can be implemented in revolutionary devices for data, communication, sensors and actuators, which are important for a wide range of industry sectors including computing, transport and biomedical.

Naemi DPG

Naëmi Leo organised a focus session on “Magnetic Correlations in Mesoscopic Spin Structures” with the help of Laura Heyderman at the annual meeting of the German Physical Society (DPG) meeting in Dresden, March 20-24, 2017.

Paul Scherrer Institute

The Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) is the largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences in Switzerland, and is a short journey from ETH Zurich. We use the world-leading large-scale facilities at PSI to probe the structure and function of our magnetic systems. With synchrotron x-rays, muons and neutrons, we explore some of the most fascinating phenomena in magnetism at timescales down to femtoseconds.
