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!

20.12.2016 – INSPIRE Group & Kläui Lab opened new Communication Zone

Yesterday, after three months of planning and construction, Jairo Sinova and Mathias Kläui opened the new Communication Zone. The shared communication space will be open for all members of the INSPIRE-Group, SPICE, the Kläui-Lab and their guests. The ComZone allows both groups to meet, discuss and work together on projects in a nice and modern working environment.

At the inauguration both group leaders were looking forward to even more interchange between the groups: "Whether you're just having a discussion over a cup of coffee, or a large scientific meeting, the new ComZone will be the perfect place for you. We like to thank the institute of physics for making this possible, as well as everybody who was involved in this project."

04.11.2016 – INSPIRE Group Welcomes New Team Members

We are very pleased to welcome Bertrand Dupé and Melanie Dupé, Kyoung-Whan Kim, Marie Böttcher and Uday Chopra to the INSPIRE group. Bertrand Dupé joined us as an interim professor and team leader. Melanie Dupé and Kyoung-Whan Kim, both postdoctoral researcher, add perfectly our team as well as Marie Böttcher and Uday Chopra, who joined us as PhD students.

01.08.2016 – Ulrike Ritzmann joined the INSPIRE Group

P1020972 - Version 2
We are very pleased to welcome Ulrike Ritzmann to the INSPIRE group. Before Ulrike joined our group, she had a Postdoc position in Prof. Ulrich Nowak's group at the University of Konstanz. Her research interest lies in the field of spin caloritronics, that combines the interplay of heat, charge and spin. In magnetic materials, temperature gradients can excite spin currents mediated via the so-called magnons, which are the excitations of the magnetic system. By using atomistic spin model simulations, she studies the thermally driven magnon propagation and its characteristic length scale in different magnetic materials starting from ferromagnets to two-sublattice materials like antiferromagnets and ferrimagnets.
