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.
