The TRR 227 kindly invites you to the joint Colloquium of the TRR 227 & FU Physics Department Colloquium, which will be held as online event. Meeting details will be given in due time.

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Pietro Gambardella - Magnetism and Interface Physics, Department of Materials, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Title: Switching, sensing, and coupling nanomagnets enabled by spin-orbit coupling

The spintronics landscape has changed dramatically over the last ten years. Much of this change is due to a deeper understanding of the charge-spin conversion processes and magnetic interactions mediated by spin-orbit coupling in different classes of materials [1]. In this talk, I will discuss new opportunities to control and manipulate the magnetization of metallic and insulating nanomagnets. Illustrative examples will focus on the electrical switching of magnetic tunnel junctions [2,3] and iron garnets [4], as well as on the emergence of chiral coupling phenomena, which enable the realization of synthetic antiferromagnets and skyrmions [5] as well as of domain wall logic circuits [6].
