Description of the offer :

A PhD project is available in the area of spin dynamics in antiferromagnetic materials, in which spins precess on a picosecond (one trillionth of a second corresponds to THz frequency) timescale and strongly couple to electro-magnetic waves. To excite THz magnons we will use ultrashort strong electro-magnetic fields produced either by table-top ultrafast lasers or by electron bunches at electron-beam facilities of Cockroft Institute. We will push the driven spin dynamics into strongly nonlinear regime required for practical applications such as quantum computation or magnetization switching . We will investigate nonlinear interaction of intense and highly coherent magnons with an eye on reaching regimes of auto-oscillations, nonlinear frequency conversion and complete magnetization reversal.
