Condensed Matter Research Seminar: Professor Olena Gomonay

Professor Olena Gomonay of the Institute of Physics, Gutenberg Universität Mainz, Germany, will be presenting a seminar on her research.

Antiferromagnetic spintronics: dynamics and textures Abstract: In my talk I will give a review of the recent results in new emerging field of antiferromagnetic spintronics.

I will focus on the electrical manipulation of antiferromagnetic states and consider dynamics of homogeneous structures and textures induced by the different types of spin torques. In particular, I will discuss the effects induced by the so-called staggered field which is a counterpart of the Zeeman field for antiferromagnets.

I will also consider the switching processes between the noncollinear states induced by the dissipative spin transfer torques and discuss possible application of antiferromagnets for information technologies.

Host: Dr Satoshi Sasaki

All are welcome to attend.
