Welcome to the magnetism group!
The electronic version of our group's Annual Report 2016 is now available for download!
Our article Phase-to-intensity conversion of magnonic spin currents and application to the design of a majority gate has been published in Scientific Reports.
Helmut Schultheiß receives national award for solid state physics
Our alumnus Dr. Helmut Schultheiß was recently announced to receive the Walter Schottky-Medal 2017 of the Deutschen Physikalische Gesellschaft (DPG). The award for condensed matter physics will be handed over on the occasion of the DPG spring meeting in March 2017. Helmut receives this prestigious award for his fundamental research about understanding spin wave propagation in nano structures and their application in new functional devices for transport and logic processing of information. Helmut finished his Ph.D. with our group in 2010. After doing a postdoc at Argonne National Laboratory he is now heading an Emmy Noether research group at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.
We wish him our very best congratulations!

New position for Burkard Hillebrands
Burkard Hillebrands has recently been appointed as the new Scientific Director of the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research (IFW) in Dresden. He will continue to run the magnetism group at the University of Kaiserslautern without any changes, including carrying out the recently awarded ERC Advanced Grant.

Discovery of a magnonic supercurrent at room temperature
Supercurrents are known physical phenomena related to the phenomena of superconductivity and superfluidity. Until now, they have only been observed at very low temperatures. Our results about the discovery of a magnonic supercurrent in a YIG film at room temperature were recently published in Nature Physics:
