Departments of the Institute

Departement
of Mesoscopic Physics

wing J, ground floor
head: prof. dr hab. Józef Barnaś

The research conducted in the Department concerns the theoretical investigations within spintronics, nanomagnetism and mesoscopic physics. The emphasize is on transport properties, magnetization dynamics, spin-orbit effects, current induced magnetic switching, correlation and topological effects in various magnetic nanostructures.

Department
of Nanostructures Physics

wing G, first and second floor
head: dr hab. Jarosław W. Kłos, prof. UAM

The Department conducts theoretical, numerical and experimental research on the dynamics of magnetization and elastic deformation. The particular attention is paid to the spin waves in magnonic nanostructures and magnetic nanotextures, as well as surface acoustic waves on periodically decorated surfaces. The numerical works on photonic and plasmonic systems are also carried out by the group.

Department
of Nonlinear Optics

wing G, second floor
head: dr hab. Krzysztof Grygiel, prof. UAM

The department develops research on quantum systems, both in terms of their basic properties and in the context of applications to quantum information engineering; quantum cryptography, quantum algoritms, quantum gates ect.
Research is also conducted in the field of quantum optics, primarily various issues of atom-field interaction, cavity and circuit QED and dynamics of nonlinear quantum optical systems.
