Magnetic and superconductive materials

Magnetic moments may be ordered, as in magnets, coherently paired, as in superconductors, or dynamically fluctuating. Nanotechnology allows us to design material with new spin based functions. In PaRMa we apply a variety of theoretical, computational and experimental approaches to exploit the spin degree of freedom, also focusing on promising new technologies.
