Model-Based Simulation of Dynamics in Ferromagnetic Nanostructures

Supervisors: Prof. Ralf Röhlsberger (DESY), Dr. Guido Meier (MPSD), Jun.-Prof. Christina Brandt (UHH)

The exact tailoring of magnetic spin systems in thin films and nanostructures plays an important role for designing micromagnetic devices with customized responses to highfrequency fields ranging from the GHz to the THz regime. Fundamental as well as application-directed research in this field is needed to achieve significant advances in highspeed information processing via the spin degree of freedom in magnetic nanostructures. In this project we will join forces in the fields of high-frequency magnetic dynamics (G. Meier), model-based simulation and identification of magnetic spin structures (C. Brandt) and synchrotron radiation methods for determination of static and dynamic magnetic structures (R. Röhlsberger) to explore new regimes in the field of ultrafast dynamics in finite spin systems.
