Arbeitsgruppe Prof. Hillebrands

Welcome to the magnetism group!

We are dedicated to cutting-edge research in the field of magnonics and related areas combined with excellent teaching.

Magnonics is a subfield of spintronics, which addresses the utilization of the spin degree of freedom for applications in information and communication technologies. We study „magnetic waves“, which are spin waves and their quanta called magnons, and we address new fundamental phenomena and their potential for applications. A particular focus is on macroscopic quantum phenomena such as supercurrents and their utilization, as well as on the development of magnonic devices for the information technology.

Our research is embedded in the Collaborative Research Center 173 „Spin+X“ funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, as well as by several national, European and international projects. We offer opportunities for qualification in the frames of student assistantships, bachelor, master diploma and PhD projects in an international environment.

Hannover Messe 2022: Rechenintensive Prozesse in Forschungs- und Entwicklungsprojekten per Cloud beschleunigen

Ist ein Prototyp entwickelt, folgt in Forschung und Entwicklung in der Regel eine zeitaufwändige Test- und Analysephase. Unmengen an Daten aus verteilten Quellen fließen dabei durch komplexe, sich mehrfach wiederholende Rechenprozesse. Diese Phase zu beschleunigen, hat sich das Kaiserslauterer Startup Aithericon auf die Fahne geschrieben. Die Gründer arbeiten an einer cloud-basierten Plattform, die in einer zentralen Umgebung die nötige Infrastruktur zusammenführt und so computergestützte Forschungs- und Entwicklungsprozesse automatisiert. Auf der Hannover Messe stellen die Gründer vom 30. Mai bis 3. Juni ihr Vorhaben am Forschungsstand des Landes Rheinland-Pfalz (Halle 2, Stand B40) vor..

Der Spin schlägt Wellen

We are very happy that our group could contribute to this article for the general public which explains the idea of spin-wave based computing. It recently appeared in the „Bild der Wissenschaft“ (in German).

We are happy to announce the "CHIRON workshop on hybrid spin-wave computing“ (workshop chair: Philipp Pirro).

The workshop will take place in Heraklion, Crete, on 27 April 2022 in a hybrid (digital and physical presence) format. The venue of the workshop is the main amphitheater of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) in Heraklion.

The aim of the workshop is to discuss recent and future concepts for spin-wave computing and the experimental and theoretical methods needed to explore them. Topics include energy efficient spin-wave excitation using the magneto-elastic interaction, large scale spin-wave circuits, nonlinear spin-wave phenomena and the use of novel material systems for magnonics.
