Mössbauer spectroscopy, Magnetotransport, Magnetism, Thin films, Topological Insulators, Spintronics
ROBERTO MANTOVAN got his Ph.D in Physics in 2006 by defending the dissertation “Mössbauer spectroscopy investigation of materials for non-volatile memory devices”. Since 2009, R. Mantovan is a Research Scientist at CNR-IMM Unit of Agrate Brianza (former MDM Laboratory). RM's main research activities currently concern spintronics with topological matter, the atomic-scale structural/chemical/magnetic characterization of bulk materials, thin films, and interfaces by means of Mössbauer spectroscopy, magnetotransport, and thin films growth mainly by chemical methods.
- 2009-2012: scientific responsible of the project SPAM3: “Spin Polarized Advanced Materials for Magnetic Memories" (co-founded by Cariplo Foundation).
- 2010-2013: CNR’s scientific responsible (Materials WP Leader) in the Fp7 EU project MAGWIRE: “Magnetic Nanowires for high Density non-volatile Memories”.
- 2018-2022: CNR’s scientific responsible in the H2020 FET-PROACTIVE Project SKYTOP “Skyrmion-Topological insulator and Weyl semimetal technology”.
- From 2003, R. Mantovan is a member of the International Mössbauer Collaboration at ISOLDE/CERN, where the recent focus has been the understanding of atomic-scale magnetism in 3d-doped oxides and semiconductors in condition of extreme dilution. Starting from 2014, R. Mantovan is the spokesperson at ISOLDE-CERN for the experiment "Atomic scale properties of magnetic Mn-based alloys probed by Emission Mössbauer spectroscopy".
