Scope and thematics
Linear and non-linear spin-wave dynamics in magnetic nano-structures.
A spin wave is a collective excitation of the electron spin system in a magnetic solid. Spin-wave characteristics can be varied by a wide range of parameters which, in combination with a rich choice of linear and non-linear spin-wave properties, renders spin waves excellent objects for the studies of general wave physics. Nowadays, spin waves and their quanta, magnons, are attracting much attention also due to another very ambitious perspective. They are being considered as data carriers in novel computing devices instead of electrons in electronics. The field of science that refers to information transport and processing by spin waves is known as magnonics. Magnonics is strongly coupled to material science since the characteristics of the magnetic materials define the characteristics of the future devices. In our workshop, key speakers from magnonics, magnon spintronics and the related material sciences will present their latest results.
