University of Greifswald (UG)

The University of Greifswald (UG) is testing new materials using advanced THz emission spectroscopy and photo-detection methods. Aim is to develop new concepts and optimize materials for low-energy and compact SHNO’s with improved charge-to-spin current conversion, optimizing spin wave damping material high spin Hall (SHE) angles on basis of new materials. We testing optical characterization and optimize optical excitation of all-spin STNO’s assisted activation by integrated low-energy laser pulses in the SpinAge team.

University of Greifswald (UG) (founded in 1465) located in Eastern Germany, the research-oriented has a long and unbroken tradition of excellence in teaching and research in the Baltic Sea Region, full university with currently 10,170 students enrolled in five faculties. The physics institute has a broad research portfolio in the following main fields: Plasma-, Atomic- und Solid State Physics, Environmental and Biophysics.
With our research we want to unify concepts from femtosecond spin dynamics and spintransport on the nanoscale to make use of them in novel spintronic devices. Understanding of the microscopic processes is leading to new understanding, materials optimization and novel applications. Our research topics are ultrafast magnetism and THz spintronics, topological magnetic textures (skyrmions), magnonics, spintronics and novel lithography techniques. The Interface- and Surface Physics Group is led by Prof. Markus Münzenberg.
