Second Oberseminar: "Spintronics"


Mi. 14:00-15:30 h in the Conference Room 216 of the Theory Institute, University of Cologne.

This advanced seminar gives on overview of fundamentals, experimental techniques, and applications of magnetism and spin transport in magnetic nanostructures. Novel phenomena occurring in magnetic thin layers and nanostructures, such as the giant magnetoresistance effect (GMR) honored by the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physics, will be discussed with relevant examples and applications.


Possible subjects of the seminar talks could be from the following fields:

  • Magnetism of thin films
  • Interlayer exchange coupling
  • Giant magnetoresistance (GMR),
  • Tunneling magnetoresistance (TMR)
  • Spin valves
  • Magnetic memories (MRAM)
  • Current-driven magnetization dynamics
  • Non-local transport phenomena
  • Pure spin currents

The organisational meeting will take place on Mi., 9th of April at 14:00 in the Conference Room 216 of the Theory Institute.
