Project description

In this project, we will address the interaction of spin waves with vortices and domain walls. These have their own dynamics, and understanding how spin waves can interact can lead to new functional magnetic devices. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy, time-resolved X-ray microscopy and advanced simulation tools will be deployed to study these interactions in nanometer sized wires and platelets.
