The AG Magnetismus at TU Kaiserslautern is searching for a PhD student to work on the spectroscopy of Skyrmions, chiral magnetization textures, by means of Brillouin Light scattering, an non-invasive, all-optical technique. The candidate shall perform the following tasks:
- Spectroscopy of spin-wave eigenmodes in Skyrmion lattices and at individual Skyrmions
- Excitation of Skyrmion dynamics by radio-frequency magnetic fields and spin currents
- External stimulation of Skyrmions by DC spin torques
The position is on a three-year basis. The PhD student will be trained in Brillouin Light Scattering spectroscopy, Ferromagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Micromagnetic Simulations and Microstructured sample fabrication in a clean-room environment. The project is embedded in the DFG Priority Program SPP2137 and, thus, well embedded in a national research network.
