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.



2018 Chinese Government Student Award
Our PhD student Qi Wang was awarded the “2018 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad" which is considered as one of the highest student awards given by the Chinese government. The award ceremony took place at the Chinese Embassy in Berlin on Sunday, May 05, 2019.


Our group together with the group of Dr. Martin Aeschlimann and our partners from the network "Magnetism in the Greater Region" have received the Interregional Science Award of the Greater Region 2018. The aim of the network, which includes also partners from France, Luxembourg and Belgium is to research magnetic phenomena in order to make them usable for industry. The 35,000 Euro prize is awarded to research teams from the Greater Region who profitably use the cross-border context to implement their research projects. The funds will be used to enhance the collaboration within magnetism research and outreach in the Greater Region.[more]
