Welcome to the homepage of the magnetism group!


In the upcoming winter term, our group will offer the Hauptseminar (Lecture course) "Magnetismus in der Nanowelt".
An introductory meeting and the registration will take place on Wednesday, 29.10.2014, 10:00 in room 46-270. For further information, please see here or contact Dr. Britta Leven.





Our group provides high school students during the Schülerinnentag (Event for female high school students) with hands on experience in experiments about magnetism.

Our manuscript "Microwave-induced spin currents in ferromagnetic-insulator|normal-metal bilayer system" has been published in Applied Physics Letters.



Our article "Magnon transistor for all-magnon data processing" was published in Nature Communications. For the German press release about it see here.

Our article Magneto-Optical Enhancement in Co/Au Patterned Nanostructures has been published in the Journal of Surfaces and Interfaces of Materials.



"The 2014 Magnetism Roadmap", a topical review paper in which world’s leading experts present their vision of the future of Magnetism in general, has been published in Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics.

Our PhD student Thomas Meyer received the Student Poster Award at the ICMM 2014 conference (Sendai, Japan) for the poster "Control of the Effective Damping in Heusler/Pt Microstructures via Spin-Transfer Torque" by him and his co-workers.
