01.07.2023 Upcoming SPICE Workshop on Terahertz Spintronics: toward Terahertz Spin-based Devices

The SPICE workshop "Terahertz Spintronics: toward Terahertz Spin-based Devices" will be held from October 10th to 12th, 2023 at the historic WASEM winery, Ingelheim.

The workshop focusses on THz spintronics, which is a novel research field that combines magnetism and spintronic with ultrafast optics. Although ultrafast demagnetization of ferromagnetic materials at picosecond timescale has been first observed already three decades ago, recent years have seen the rapid development of THz spintronic devices stemming from ground breaking studies. In the last years, the numerous improvements made in material research (such as on topological insulators and antiferromagnetic materials), interface quality and device engineering have been central to both explore spin-based physics at THz frequencies and investigate to new concepts of spin based THz devices. These cover the full THz block chain (broad and narrowband THz generation and detection, together with control of radiation properties such as polarization and ellipticity) as well as new approaches for THz imaging and encoding THz information. This workshop will bring together world-leading scientists from a broad range of communities, generating further collaborations and developmentsin this emerging field.

You can apply online for the workshop until August 14th, 2023.
