Dynamics of complex magnets – non-colinear and frustrated antiferromagnets
Dr J Barker
31 July 2019
Historically, antiferromagnets have been difficult to study and utilise as they do not couple strongly to external fields. Recent scientific advances have found new ways to directly control them, giving rise to the new field of antiferromagnetic spintronics.
