Theory of Spin-Orbit Torque

The working of countless electronic devices involves electric and magnetic effects interacting within nanostructured materials. In the phenomenon known as spin

Spin Dynamics and Magnetic Microscopy

The Spin Dynamics and Magnetic Microscopy Project develops metrology for magnetodynamic effects such as ferromagnetic resonance, switching, and damping. We

Neuromorphic systems

Neuromorphic systems are required to develop cognitive processors as well as to understand how the brain works and how to measure brain function and dysfunction

van der Waals (vdW) engineering of magnetism is a topic of increasing research interest in the community at present. We study the magnetic properties of quasi

Electron Induced Massive Dynamics of Magnetic Domain Walls

Author(s)
Hilary M. Hurst, Victor Galitski, Tero T. Heikkila
We study the dynamics of domain walls (DWs) in a metallic, ferromagnetic nanowire. We develop a Keldysh collective coordinate technique to describe the effect
