Micromagnetism : Fundamental Research

Riccardo Hertel

Our micromagnetic research aims at improving the understanding of the physics of magnetic nanostructures. Ultimately, novel spintronic applications may arise from new discoveries.

The studies include high-precision simulations on fast and ultrafast processes :

- Magnetic vortex dynamics

- Spin wave propagation and manipulation in confined geometries

- Magnetic switching

- Dynamics of domain walls in magnetic wires

- Spin-torque induced magnetization dynamics

- Ultrafast, laser-induced dynamics

- Thermally activated processes
