New people in the group

Paul-Iulian Gavriloaea will make his PhD (Large-scale modelling of combined all-optical and/or electric switching) with us under the supervision of Oksana Fesenko.  The PhD project is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action COMRAD (Cold Opto-Magnetism for Random Access Devices). The key aim of the consortium is to combine spin-orbitronics with ultrafast magnetism towards the development of faster (sub 100 ps) and greener (< 10 fJ/bit) random access devices. In general lines, my project is based on further developing the finite-temperature micromagnetic framework based on the Landau-Lifshitz-Bloch equation to accommodate for electrical fields/currents or spin-orbit torques in the modelling of laser induced magnetisation dynamics. We will be using the code to describe the switching process in various multilayer structures such as Co/Pt or Pt/Co/Gd and ferrimagnets (e.g. RFeCo/Pt, where R is a Rare Earth). Furthermore, the model will be also used to assist various real switching scenarios aiming to replicate experimental results or help predict the most efficient routes to reversal.
