Introduction to Skyrmions


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

The focus of the seminar will be on
- Spin dynamics and spin currents (Spin pumping, Spin Hall Magnetoresistance)
- Thermal spin manipulation (Spin caloritronics, Spin Seebeck Effect)
- Spin dynamics, spin transfer torque, magnonics & skyrmionics

All topics have substantial overlap with magnetism-related research activities at the WMI and the TUM physics department. Seminar talks can be given either in English or in German.

The seminar is particularly relevant for the special courses on "Magnetism" and "Spintronics". It is suitable for bachelor and master students in the 6. semester and higher.

Topics for seminar talks in SS 2016:

Responsibles: Matthias Althammer (Tel.: 089 289 14210, matthias.althammer@wmi.badw.de) and Sebastian T.B. Goennenwein (Tel.: 089 289 14204, goennenwein@wmi.badw.de)
