Alternative spinel phases created at the nanometric scale by spinodal transformation

What is it about?

Two spinel phases having different magnetic and electrical properties are created in thin films using spinodal transformation.This transformation is characterize mainly by Raman spectroscopy.

Why is it important?

Spinodal transformations in thin films of iron cobaltites was the subject of very few works. The periodic organisation at the nanometric scale due to spinodal transfrmation could give original collective properties.
