Focus on research

The HIE-ISOLDE project at CERN, KU Leuven - University of Leuven

Local doping and local deposition of energy, which is inherent to ion beams, is used to synthesize nanometer-sized precipitates and to tailor the lateral structure of specific complexes. Functional properties of these nanostructures are explored, with emphasis on electron transport and magnetic properties, e.g. the onset of magnetism in small entities and the interplay between resistivity and magnetic order. Hyperfine interaction and emission-channeling studies after implantation of short-living (ISOLDE) and long-living radioactive probes (the Ion and Molecular Beam Laboratory, IMBL, KU Leuven – University of Leuven) are used to characterize the local environment of the probes. These low-dose experiments that probe the microscopic properties of the sample are complemented with Rutherford backscattering and more conventional solid-state techniques. This research domain requires the unique possibilities at the local facility (IMBL) complemented with characterization studies at different international large scale facilities, like ESRF–Grenoble (X-rays), ILL–Grenoble (neutrons) and ISOLDE, Geneva (radioactive ions), often pioneering new experimental methodologies.
