Joo-Von Kim from the Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology/CNRS/Université Paris-Sud in Orsay arrived for his two-month stay as a guest scientist in the INSPIRE group. He will use his expertise in micromagnetic simulations to work with Bertrand Dupé on the coupled motion of (anti)skyrmion pairs in magnetic ultrathin films ("Skyrmion Tango"). His stay is financially supported by the DAAD.
Guests and Visitors
This week, we welcome Nadine Hauptmann from Radboud University in Nijmegen as our seminar guest. She is a specialist in scanning probe microscopy and works in the group of Alexander Khajetoorians. We are looking forward to her presentation about the new probing capabilities of SPEX (spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy combined with magnetic exchange force microscopy) applied to the ultrathin film system Fe/Ir(111), where nano-skyrmions or spin spirals occur depending on the number of Fe-layers.
The today's seminar will be given by Joanathan Chico from Forschungszentrum Jülich. He will talk about several methods to calculate "Gilbert damping from first-principles methods".
It is a pleasure to have Peter Oppeneer from Uppsala University as our guest today. He will give an overview of the latest developments in the theory of ultrafast magnetization dynamics.
We welcome our current guest scientists from Japan and India. Hiroyuki Fujita from University of Tokyo and Akihiro Okamoto from Tokyo Institute of Technology will stay with us until the middle and end of July 2017 to get inspired for their PhD studies by the Antiferromagnetic Spintronics team. Whereas Shambawi Pandey conducts a two-months internship on "First-Principles Modelling of Spin Relaxation Mechanisms in High-Mobility Chalcogenide Polymers" within the Organic Spintronics team to complete her Bachelor studies at the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee.
Marie Hervé from the group of Wulf Wulfhekel at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology visited us to present her work on new resonance techniques in spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy and ultra-thin films exhibiting non-collinear magnetic structures. We had two very interesting days together in Mainz. Let's join forces to understand spin-transfer torques on the atomic scale!
Joo-Von Kim from the Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology/CNRS/Université Paris-Sud in Orsay visited the INSPIRE Group for several days. He gave an insightful talk about "Skyrmion dynamics in nanostructures: Breathing modes, oscillators, and the role of disorder". We enjoyed the discussions about skyrmion simulations and hope to see him again soon!
