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

The focus of the seminar will be on
- Spin orbit torques and magnetization dynamics
- Antiferromagnets and Skyrmions
- Pure spin currents

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 WS 2016/2017:

Spin Orbit Torques and magnetization dynamics

  1. Room-temperature spin-orbit torque in NiMnSb (Literature: C. Ciccarelli et al., Nat Phys 12, 855 (2016))
  2. Electric-field control of spin–orbit torque in a magnetically doped topological insulator. (Literature: Fan, Y. et al. Nat Nano 11, 352–359 (2016)).
  3. Femtosecond control of electric currents in metallic ferromagnetic heterostructures. (Literature: Huisman, T. J. et al. Nat Nano 11, 455–458 (2016)).
  4. Spin–orbit torque switching without an external field using interlayer exchange coupling. (Literature: Lau, Y.-C., Betto, D., Rode, K., Coey, J. M. D. & Stamenov, P Nat Nano 11, 758–762 (2016)).
  5. Snell’s Law for Spin Waves. (Literature: Stigloher, J. et al.  Phys. Rev. Lett. 117, 37204 (2016)).
  6. Inverse spin Hall effect from pulsed spin current in organic semiconductors with tunable spin-orbit coupling. (Literature: Sun, D. et al., Nat Mater 15, 863–869 (2016)).

Antiferromagnets and Skyrmions:

  1. Antiferromagnetic Spin Seebeck Effect (Literature: Wu et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 097204 (2016))
  2. Magnetization switching by spin–orbit torque in an antiferromagnet–ferromagnet bilayer system (Literature: Fukami et al., Nature Materials 4566 (2016))
  3. Blowing Skyrmions (Literature: Jiang et al., Science 349, 283 (2015))
  4. Universal helimagnon and skyrmion excitations in metallic, semiconducting and insulating chiral magnets (Literature: Schwarze et al., Nature Materials 14, 478 (2015))
  5. Chiral damping of magnetic domain walls. (Literature: Jué, E. et al., Nat Mater 15, 272–277 (2016)).
  6. Magnetic skyrmions and their current-driven dynamics in ultrathin metallic ferromagnets (Literature: Woo, S. et al., Nat Mater 15, 501–506 (2016)).
  7. Scanned probe imaging of nanoscale magnetism at cryogenic temperatures with a single-spin quantum sensor. (Literature: Pelliccione, M. et al., Nat Nano 11, 700–705 (2016)).

Pure Spin Currents:

  1. Length Scale of the Spin Seebeck Effect (Literature: Kehlberger et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 096602 (2015))
  2. Spin-Hall magnetoresistance and spin Seebeck effect in spin-spiral and paramagnetic phases of multiferroic CoCr2O4 films (Literature: Aqeel et al., Phys. Rev. B 92, 224410 (2015))
  3. Direct Detection of Pure ac Spin Current by X-Ray Pump-Probe Measurements. (Literature: Li, J. et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 117, 76602 (2016)).
