Description of the offer :

A Ph.D. position is available in the field of spintronics studying high spatial resolution magnetic imaging of magnetic spin structures and their nanosecond dynamics, in selected systems. High resolution magnetic imaging provides a direct window to the physics of a system as well as important practical considerations, such as switching pathways. In particular, recently discovered effects arising from the spin-orbit interaction have been observed to lead to a number of exciting and very timely new phenomena such as Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction, which stabilizes novel chiral spin configurations such as skyrmions with topologically enhanced stability, as well as leading to new efficient avenues for current-induced magnetic state switching, such as by spin – orbit torques. In addition to the study of the fundamental processes, this project has a strong outlook towards technological applications such as data storage and logic.
