New Publication: Coherent Transfer of Spin Angular Momentum by Evanescent Spin Waves within Antiferromagnetic NiO

David Newman

Congratulations to second year PGR David Newman, who has co-authored ‘Coherent Transfer of Spin Angular Momentum by Evanescent Spin Waves within Antiferromagnetic NiO’, recently published in Physical Review Letters. Out of the fourteen co-authors, David is listed fifth. His supervisors Dr. Maciej Dąbrowski and Prof. Robert Hicken are also co-authors.

The publication was also the subject of a Physics Viewpoint article, titled ‘Spin Current in an Antiferromagnet is Coherent’. It has also been featured on the University’s research news as an important breakthrough with the potential to lead to new high speed energy efficient data technology.

Ineta Grikalaite and Joaquin Faneca give virtual presentations at SPb Photonic, Optoelectronic, & Electronic Materials 2020

Fourth year student Joaquin Faneca and second year student Ineta Grikalaite attended SPb Photonic, Optoelectronic, & Electronic Materials 2020 online conference and presented their work during the virtual poster sessions in the format of a 1 min elevator pitch. Joaquin presented his work on “On-chip sub-wavelength Bragg grating design based on novel low loss phase-change materials”, while Ineta presented her work on “Terahertz metadevices with multilayer graphene”. Communicating their work in an online format was a new and exciting experience for both students, with an opportunity to reach a significantly wider audience compared to a conventional conference.

Both virtual posters were tweeted on @spbpoem and can be found by looking up the hashtag #spbpoem_poster.
