Workshop description

cursorAntiferromagnets are spin-symmetry broken ground states that, in contrast to ferromagnets, lack a macroscopic magnetization since the dipolar fields of their staggered spin configurations average to zero. Antiferromagnets are technologically important for exchange-biasing ferromagnets, but only recently they have been recognized to be interesting materials to design active components in spintronic devices such as spin-wave logic gates. For example, antiferromagnets have no cross-talk stray fields, in antiferromagnetic semiconductors the carrier concentration can be controlled, antiferromagnetic domain walls can be engineered, the anisotropic tunneling magnetoresistance (AMR) is substantial, and the antiferromagnetic order parameter can be switched by spin-transfer torques and ultra-fast by lasers.

This workshop will bring together experts in this emerging field. It will cover all aspects of the spintronics with antiferromagnets, including theory, computational material science, and experiments.
