Research description:

The principal objective of our research program is the study of novel magnetic phenomena in low dimensional magnetic systems, which are laterally confined where the thickness is on the nanometer scale, occurring within very short (i.e., nano- and pico-second) time scales.
The goal in our research is to understand how magnetic properties change as the dimensions of magnetic systems approach the ultimate limits of miniaturization and time scale.
This is a particularly important issue since the spin dynamics, which is the collective process of flipping the magnetic moments of many thousands of atoms at once, has been widely studied but has not been well understood at a fundamental level.
From a practical point of view, understanding spin dynamics in the basic physics has become more and more crucial, owing to the increasing demands on conventional storage technologies and for newer approaches such as magnetic random access memories (MRAM).
