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 article "Design of a spin-wave majority gate employing mode selection" has been published in Applied Physics Letters.


Our article "Non-Gilbert damping mechanism in a ferromagnetic Heusler compound probed by nonlinear spin dynamics" has been accepted for publication in Physical Review Letters.


The prestiguous Visiting Professorship by the Graduate School of Excellence MAINZ was awarded to our close collaborator Prof. Andrei Slavin (Oakland University, Rochester, MI, USA).

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.
