09.03.2018 – Combined SPEX and DFT study on the surface reconstruction of 2Fe/Ir(111)

The study of Melanie and Bertrand Dupé on "Revealing the correlation between real-space structure and chiral magnetic order at the atomic scale" has just been published in Physical Review B as Rapid Communication. This work is a collaboration with the the Scanning Probe Microscopy Group of Alexander A. Khajetoorians at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

09.02.2018 – Antiferromagnetic resonance in Mn2Au with Neel Spin-Orbit Torques

The team of Jure Demnsar, in collaboration with Gomonay and Sinova,  have been able to excite antiferromagnetic resonance in Mn2Au by exploiting the Neel spin-orbit Torque.

30.01.2018 – Visit of Babak Seradjeh

We welcome today's guest, Babak Seradjeh, from Indiana University, who is an expert in topological insulators and superconductors, Majorana fermions in condensed matter systems, and realization and manipulation of fractional particles.
He will be discussing Universal fluctuations of Floquet topological invariants at low frequencies.  Please join us to hear about the newest development in this hot topic.

26.01.2018 – Our prediction of Neel Spin-Orbit torques in Mn2Au realized experimentally

The Kläui group in collaboration with the Sinova group demonstrate technologically feasible read-out and writing of digital information in antiferromagnets / Basic principle for ultrafast and stable magnetic memory. This was achieved by our prediction of Neel Spin-Orbit Torques three years ago. You can see the press release here.
