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.

19.12.2017 – Olena Gomonay receives DFG grant

We congratulate Olena (Helen) Gomonay on obtaining her first DFG research grant “SHARP: Spintronics witHAntiferRomagntes and Phonos”. Well done Helen!

The proposed research project will open and explore new ways to detect and manipulate antiferromagnets using phonons and magneto-elastic coupling effects.

12.12.2017 – Visit to the University of Twente

Kriti, Jairo and Paul in a transport meeting.
Seminar of Jairo Sinova in Twente the 12.12.2017

Prof. Jairo Sinova and Bertrand Dupé are visiting the group of Prof. Paul Kelly at the University of Twente for a couple of days. It is a pleasure to visit the group of Prof. Kelly and benefit from his long experience in spin transport calculations from ab initio.


05.12.2017 – Visit of Bernd Zimmermann

This week, we are very pleased to host Dr. Bernd Zimmernann from the group of Prof. Yuriy Mokrousov from Forschungszentrum Jülich. He will teach us about spin-orbit effects from ab-initio theory.
