Magnetism & Spintronics: Spin Mechanics


(png, 10k)

Spin Mechanics

The interplay between an elastic deformation of a solid and the magnetization direction, called magnetoelastic coupling, allows to sense and control the magnetization direction via the lattice stress and vice versa. Tailoring this interaction enables the realization of hybrid devices. We explore ...

  • The opportunities and the fundamental limits of the spin mechanics concept
  • The influence of the ferromagnet's properties, in particular crystallinity and magnetic anisotropy, on the voltage-control of magnetization
  • Spin mechanics in (nanoscale) ferromagnetic / ferroelectric heterostructures
  • Spin mechanics at radio frequencies, i.e., elastically driven ferromagnetic resonance
  • Sensing magnetoelastics with nanostring resonators
