26.06.2017 – Visit of Nadine Hauptmann

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.

06.06.2017 – SPICE Spin Dynamics in the Dirac Systems workshop starts

We welcome the participants of the SPICE Spin Dynamics in the Dirac Systems workshop .

The workshop offer a platform for the knowledge exchange between diverse novel condensed matter domains such as topological insulators and superconductors, Weyl physics, topological Josephson junctions, spintronics in graphene, spin valves, spin-logic devices, quantum magnetism, spin lattices, frustrated magnets, spin liquids, non-trivial spin states, etc.

We wish you all a very productive meeting!

11.05.2017 – New Guest Students from Japan and India

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.

02.05.2017 – INSPIRE group welcomes new member Reza Mahani

Reza Mahani has just joined the group and will support the Organic Spintronics team as a postdoctoral researcher. Before he was a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Information and Communication Technology at KTH, Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

We wish him a good start in Mainz!

15.02.2017 – Joo-Von Kim revisited the INSPIRE Group

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!
