Our Researches

Our group focuses on the field of novel Spintronics materials and devices prerequisite for fourth industrial revolution and new biomedical technologies. Research motto is Innovative “First Mover” beyond “World Best”. Accordingly, our group has developed a sensor milestone based on coherent Planar Hall magnetoresistance (PHMR) in magnetic multilayers aiming to forthcoming industrial applications, such as 3D electronic compass, IoT, and communication. Also our group leads the Spintrophoresis, integrated spin devices with micro-fluidic channel, toward the multiplexed cell tweezers, molecular and celluar diagnosis platform. International cooperation with world-wide leading groups is encouraged for the development of up-to-date spintronics devices and innovative biomedical technologies.
