Olga Adanakova, Russian
I received a Master's degree in Physics and Astronomy, specializing in Physics of Magnetic Phenomena, from Ural Federal University, Russia. In parallel, for several years, I worked as a researcher in the field of magnetic nanostructures (thin films and micro-/nanowires), using mainly magnetometric, magnetoresistive and magneto-optical methods.
Currently, I am a doctoral student at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of Uppsala University. My project within SwedNess is devoted to the study of arrays of magnetic nanoparticles with different mesoscopic geometries (hexagonal-based vs square-based symmetries) and dimensionality (1-3D), in particular, the role of interparticle interactions and external forces in assembly formation. To establish the relationship between structural arrangement and magnetic states, a combination of relevant techniques will be used, such as (polarized) neutron reflectivity, off-specular scattering, (polarized) grazing incidence small-angle neutron scattering, magnetometry, atomic/magnetic force microscopy and ferromagnetic resonance spectroscopy. The use of polarized neutrons is unique for this project in the sense that it is one of the few tools that can and will provide information about the magnetization and orientation of magnetic moments of the arrays.
