Recent advances in magnetism: from Skyrmions to phase recognition with machine learning

Dmitry Yudin Researcher, ITMO University (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) 29 Aug 2018, 14:00-15:00 SkolTech, TPOC-4, Nobel str. 1, Red Building, 3rd floor, Room 351 Special Seminar Guest: Grigory Kabatyansky In spite of being a mature field of research studying of magnetism and magnetic materials remains one of the most exciting area in condensed matter physics. Indeed, tremendous progress in technological development over the last decades is mainly held by achievements in spintronics and related fields, stemming from pioneering works on giant and tunnel magnetoresistance and spin-transfer torque. In this talk, we discuss a general framework which allows a direct and self-contained evaluation of spin torques within microscopic theory. We further apply our findings to[…]
