Welcome to the homepage of the magnetism group!


Die Folien zu Prof. Hillebrands' Vortrag im Rahmen der Ringvorlesung stehen ab sofort zum Herunterladen bereit.

Einen Überblick über die möglichen Themen für Diplom- oder Masterarbeiten finden Sie hier.

Bei Fragen oder bei Interesse an einer Mitarbeit in unserer Gruppe stehen Prof. Hillebrands und alle anderen Gruppenmitglieder selbstverständlich gerne zur Verfügung.


Upcoming talk in our Group seminar:

"Magnetization dynamics and damping detected by all-optical pump-probe methods" by Satoshi Iihama on Monday, 1.12.2014, 11:00 in room 56-415.

Guests are, as always, very much welcome.


Federico Montoncello from the University of Ferrara will give a talk on in our group on "Bandwidth variation of collective spin waves at the edge of magnetic transitions" on Wednesday, 3.12.2013, 10:00 in room 56-415.


A list of the upcoming talks in the Hauptseminar "Magnetismus in der Nanowelt" can be found here.

For further information regarding this lecture, please contact Dr. Britta Leven.
