New excitations in Spintronics

Renvyle House Hotel, Renvyle, Co. Galway Ireland

In order to design  novel devices in spintronics, we need to extend our understanding of the dynamics and transport properties of nano-structured magnets. In particular we would like to exploit couplings to exotic excitations (optical modes in cavities, hybrid magnon-polaron modes, magnon-phonon modes…) and understand their relations to spin-Seebeck effects and spin pumping. Such couplings can be studied both from the point of view of microscopic analysis of bulk materials or, directly in nano-scale devices, by delicate measurements such as spin-current injection and spin-Seebeck effects.

The detailed analysis of the materials, in bulk form or as films can benefit from the  complementarity of neutron and X-ray scattering. New theoretical advances are also needed to thoroughly interpret experimental results.

The Reimei workshop "New excitations in Spintronics 2019" is designed to bring together an international group of specialists, experimentalists and theoreticians, to explore recent results in the field. To remain at the forefront of the field, we will discuss possible future international collaborations involving  researchers in universities and laboratories interested in both fundamental issues and industrial applications, with particular attention to opportunities at neutron sources.
