Magnetic Resonance Laboratory

The Magnetic Resonance Laboratory is part of the Basic Physics Activity Unit of the Centro Atómico Bariloche of the Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica, located in San Carlos de Bariloche, Rio Negro, Argentina. The research carried out here complements the academic training of the Instituto Balseiro of the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, as well as welcomes collaborations with other institutions in the country and abroad. Our main activities include basic and applied research in new developments in magnetic properties in materials with applications in medicine, spintronics, materials science and sensors associated with conventional activities and the nuclear sector.

Invited speaker at the AtC-AtG Magnetics Conference
Elin Winkler, will give an invited talk at the 2021 AtC-AtG Magnetics Conference. The talk entitled “Design of core/shell nanoparticles for optimizing the magnetic hyperthermia and the catalytic activity” is schedule for August 24th.

Ph. D. thesis defense
We are pleased to announce that Jesus Gonzalez will defend his Ph.D. thesis on July, 8th. His thesis entitled “Estudio de las propiedades estructurales magnéticas y de transporte en multicapas multiferroicas. Influencia de las tensiones y el desorden estructural” explores the interfaces and the structural disorder influence on the magnetism and magnetotransport of LaBaMnO3– and BaSrTiO3-based multilayers
Congratulations Jesus!
