InstructorTheodosis Trypiniotis 


  • Introduction: Magnetic materials, Units in Magnetism, Contributions to magnetic energy, Domains and domain walls.
  • Magnetism in low dimensions: Anisotropy in reduced dimensions, Magnetic textures in thin films and nanostructures, Domain walls.
  • Dynamics: the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation, Ferromagnetic resonance, Domain wall motion.
  • Experimental techniques: Static and Dynamic Magnetometry, Magnetic imaging, Ultra high purity crystal nanostructure growth.
  • Exotic states of magnetic textures: Domain wall bound states, vortices, skyrmions.

Assesment: Each student gives an extensive presentation of a recent publication(s) focussed on the latest developments within a specific area of spintronics.
