Magnetism & Spintronics: Spin Dynamics

Spin Dynamics

We study the dynamics of paramagnets and exchange-coupled spin systems by magnetic resonance spectroscopy. We are interested in extracting fundamental material parameters like magnetic damping, anisotropy and exchange in a wide range of material classes. Furthermore, we apply broadband magnetic resonance to study dynamics of topologically nontrivial magnets and spin-orbit torques. Experimental facilities include:

  • Broadband, coplanar waveguide based magnetic resonance in a frequency range up to 50 GHz and magnetic fields up to 2.7 T provided by a room-temperature electromagnet
  • 3D vector-magnet cryostat capable of applying up to 2.5 T in any direction, with temperature ranging from 1.7 K to 300 K and frequency up to 50 GHz.
  • Broadband magnetic resonance at ultralow temperatures (below 100 mK)
  • Quantitative phase-resolved magnetic resonance using vector network analysis
  • Cavity based magnetic resonance at 10 GHz and 24 GHz with temperatures from 4 K to 300 K
  • Frequency-resolved magneto-optic Kerr effect for spatially resolved magnetic resonance studies at room temperature
  • Access to a micro focused room-temperature Brillouin Light Scattering facility through the Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM).
