Ultra-fast and energy efficient magnetisation reversal by femto-seconde laser pulses has been demonstrated in full films. the PhD research project will focus on scalability. This aspect is rather unexplored whereas it can unveil the underlying mechanisms of optical switching. The size is a powerful parameter impacting light absorption, thermal dissipation and magnetic processes. Extending the optical switching toward smaller objects is also a key enabler for future devices and particularly high density information storage.
