Dr. D. Sander (MPI, Halle):

New insights into nanomagnetism and superconductivity by low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy

Spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy at low temperature (8 K) and in high magnetic fields (6 T) is a powerful technique to investigate magnetic properties of individual nanoscale objects ranging in size form single atoms to several thousand atoms [1]. I focus on the magnetization reversal [2] and the spin-dependent electronic properties of Co [3] and Fe-decorated Co islands [4] with some thousand atoms. The high spatial resolution of the scanning tunneling spectroscopy reveals the significance of structural and electronic relaxation [5] for the magnetic anisotropy and the spin-dependent transport properties [6] of single islands. In an outlook I present first results on superconductivity of Pb monolayers and islands from our new STM, which operates at 0.3 K in a vector magnetic field. Future work will focus on investigations of the interplay between superconductivity and magnetism on the nanoscale. [1] H. Oka, O. Brovko, M. Corbetta, V. Stepanyuk, D. Sander, J. Kirschner, Rev.
