Spin-transport & Nanomagnetism

In recent years, a multitude of novel devices has been proposed, which rely on the dynamic interplay between spin, charge and other degrees of freedom in magnetic nanostructures. Prominent, examples include spin-orbit and spin-transfer torque systems as well as optical, magnonic, caloritronic and spin-hall devices. Here, we explore the fundamental nature and the origin of magnetism and spin-interactions in model systems with dimension in the atomic- and molecular scale as well as hybrid mesoscopic devices with length scales up to few hundred nanometers.
