About the Project

A magnon is a collective excitation of spins in a magnetic material and can be characterised as a spin wave. These spin-waves are likely to play an important role in next-generation spintronics and magnetic data storage. Among the magnetic materials that support magnons, anti-ferromagnets are particularly interesting because they support magnons at high frequencies, in the terahertz range. In this project you will investigate, both theoretically and experimentally, how narrow linewidth terahertz lasers can be used to study and control high frequency magnons in antiferromagnets.
