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 complex spin structures


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

Topics for seminar talks in SS 2015:
  1. Magnetization-dynamics in complex spinstructures:
    1. Spin-dynamics in antiferromagnets (Literature: Lax and Button: Microwave Ferrites And Ferrimagnetics, Chapter 6)
    2. Spin-dynamics in ferrimagnets (Literature: Lax and Button: Microwave Ferrites And Ferrimagnetics, Chapter 6)
  2. Antiferromagnetic Spintronics
    1. Introduction into antiferromagnetic based Spintronics (Literature: Núñez et al., Phys. Rev. B 73, 214426 (2006))
    2. Anisotropic magnetoresistance in antiferromagnets (Literature: Fina et al., Nature Com. 5, 4671 (2014))
    3. Current induced magnetization switching in antiferromagnets (Literature: Wadley et al., arXiv:1503.03765)
  3. Spincurrents in superconductor/ferromagnet hybrids
    1. Introduction into Superconducting Spintronics (Literature: Lindner and Robinson, Nature Physics 11, 307 (2015))
    2. Spin transport in exchange split superconductors (Literature: Wolf et al., Phys. Rev. B 90, 144509 (2014))
    3. Nonequilibrium effects in Josephson junction coupled to a precessing spin (Literature: Holmqvist et al., Phys. Rev. B 83, 104521 (2011))
  4. Skyrmions:
    1. Introduction into Skyrmions (Literature: Nagaosa and Tokura, Nature Nanotechnology 8, 899 (2013))
    2. Emergent Electrodynamics in Skyrmions (Literature: Schulz et al., Nature Physics 8, 301 (2012))
    3. Blowing Skyrmions (Literature: Jiang et al., arXiv:1502.08028)
