WP 1 Synthesis of novel graphite/graphene systems

Fluorographene is a stoichiometric derivative of graphene with a fluorine atom attached to each carbon.

In this proposal we studying a structure which is expected to possess a rich variety of electronic properties, semifluorinated graphene, where a fluorine atom is attached to every second carbon atom: C2F. Read more

WP 2 Magnetism in the vicinity of MIT (Metal-Insulating Transition)

Induced magnetism is caused by the charge carriers introduced from nonmagnetic impurity atoms to semiconductors in the vicinity of MIT (metal-insulator transition). The charge carriers are introduced by Neutron Transmutation Doping. Read more

WP 3 Ion-beam induced magnetic nanopatterning

Investigating the irradiation-induced magnetism, analyzing the effect of different species, their energy and dose, process temperature and time on the induced magnetism, we correlate structural (lattice cell parameter, crystallite size, microstrain and atomic intermixing and magnetic (saturation magnetization, Curie temperature, ferro / antiferro / superparamagnetic) properties.

WP 4 Advanced quality control

This WP provides depth quality tests to link the synthesis, control, theory and application activities; cross-correlation of structure with temperature, pressure and composition-dependent magnetic transition; identifies of key structural and compositional motifs enabling high Tc carbon-based magnetic materials.

WP 5 Magnetic characterization

The true and unparalleled power of magnetic resonance techniques (NMR, FMR, EPR) lies in the fact that it can probe the electron properties either directly via para/ferromagnetic resonance or indirectly via contact interactions revealed by various nuclear magnetic resoanace experiments. AC/DC magnetometry will be used in parallel to provide all information needed to understand novel magnetism. Read more

WP 6 Theory and design

There is a need for understanding the possibilities of spin injection in graphene-based materials. Intrinsically magnetic regions created by induced magnetism may solve this problem. Advanced multistage computational methodologies combining state of the art ab initio and tight binding approaches will be developed to tackle with spin transport and spin-orbit coupling in modified forms of graphene.

WP 7 Corrective actions and knowledge transfer

The dissemination, exploitation and the protection of the intellectual property of the Project results will be organized in this work package which has two major objectives, scientific (corrective actions) and administrative (knowledge transfer). Read more
