Department of Nanostructures Physics

Scientific degrees

PhD in physics – 2014

Research interests

Keywords: spintronics, magnonics, voltage-controlled magnetic anisotropy, magnetic damping, magnetic skyrmions

Currently, I am working on the investigation and manipulation of various types of physical phenomena such as perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, damping, Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction originated at the interfaces of magnetic heterostructures. The purpose is to utilize these interfacial phenomena for the control of spin wave properties, properties of magnetic skyrmions and coupling between magnons with other quasiparticles such as phonons with an ultimate goal to develop energy efficient miniaturized microwave devices for future technology.
