This seminar deals with magnetism-related phenomena in solid state physics.

The focus of the seminar will be on
1. magnetization dynamics
2. torques in magnetic systems

All topics have substantial overlap with magnetism-related research activities at the Walther-Meissner-Institut and TUM physics department.

Topics for seminar talks in WS 2014:
  1. Landau Lifshitz Gilbert Equation and Spin Transfer Torques (Literature: Ralph and Stiles, JMMM 320, 1190 (2008))

  2. Spin Orbit Torques (Literature: Manchon et al (Chapter 8 in Handbook of spin transport and magnetism))

  3. Spin Orbit Torque Driven Ferromagnetic Resonance (Literature: Fang et al. Nature Nano 6, 413 (2011))

  4. Spin Hall Effect Driven Ferromagnetic Resonance (Liu et al., PRL 106, 036601 (2011))

  5. Current-Induced Spin Orbit Torque (Literature: Chenyshov et al., Nature Phys. 5, 656 (2009)     (and Jungwirth RMP …))

  6. Spin Orbit Torque Induced Magnetisation Switching (Literature: Miron et al, Nature  Mater 9, 230 (2010))

  7. Current-Induced Domain Wall Motion (Literature: Emori et al (Beach), Nature Mater 12, 611 (2013))

  8. Spin Noise in Semiconductors (Literature: Müller et al, APL 97, 192109 (2010))

  9. Silicon Spintronics (Literature: Jansen et al, Nature Mater. 11, 400 (2012))
