Welcome to Magic+

Magnetism, Interactions and Complexity: a multifunctional aspects of spin wave dynamics and transport properties in low-dimensional quantum materials

satellite workshop to The European Conference Physics of Magnetism 2021

To explore and fully exploit opportunities emerging from spintronics and magnonics.

July 5 - 7, 2021

Poznań, Poland, fully on-line.

     MagIC+ is the satellite workshop to The European Conference Physics of Magnetism 2021, PM’21, the conference organized jointly by Institute of Molecular Physics Polish Academy of Science in Poznań and Faculty of Physics in Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland.

     The topic of the MagIC+ workshop focuses on novel ideas in combined areas of spintronic and magnonic. The programme feature an overview of and introduction into cutting-edge research in spintronics and magnonics, with a focus on their cross-disciplinary topics involved 2D materials, nanoscale magnetization textures, topological phases and beyond. The Workshop aims to stimulate discussion between early-stage and experienced researchers working in the field of magnonics and spintronics. The Workshop offers an excellent opportunity to share the latest results, exchange opinions, and discuss emergent and future directions related to spin-waves and magnetic solitons, spin-dependent transport, and spintronics devices based on new quantum materials. The lectures will be delivered by world-leading experts in spintronics and magnonics, broadly united under the following topics:

  • skyrmions and their dynamics,
  • 3D solitons and 3D magnonics,
  • quantum materials
  • metamaterials,
  • van-der-Waals heterostructures and twisted magnets,
  • antiferromagnetic spintronics,
  • valleytronics and spin-orbitronics,
  • topological insulators,
  • topological properties (quantum and classical) of 2D materials,
  • magnetotransport,
  • supermagnonics,
  • optospintronics.

  • NCN is a government agency, supervised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, set up in 2011 to support basic research in Poland.

The Workshop is supported by three projects:

NCN GRIEG: Spin and charge transport in low-dimensional novel quantum materials (2Dtronics)

(No. 2019/34/H/ST3/00515), coordinated by prof. Anna Dyrdał (AMU) in collaboration with Dr Alireza Qaiumzadeh (QuSpin/NTNU, Norway)

The project focuses on such subfields of spintronics as spin-orbitronics, valleytronics, magnonics, and antiferromagnetic spintronics, where the symmetries and topological properties of the systems play an essential role. We wish to focus on novel materials that may serve as a platform for phenomena where the topological nature of quasiparticle states is crucial and allows for various spin-to-charge interconversion phenomena. We aim to combine the spin and valley degrees of freedom with the symmetries and topological properties of the system to describe and propose phenomena that enable us to work out new protocols for electronic and logic devices. Additionally, we want to study the presence of some emergent phenomena in low dimensional quantum magnetic systems, like magnon BEC and spin superfluidity, important from both academic and application points of view.

NCN POLS: Statics and dynamics of 3d magnetization textures (3DMATEX)

(No. 2020/37/K/ST3/02450), coordinated by prof. Olena Tartakivska (AMU and IMAG, Kyiv, Ukraine) in collaboration with prof. Konstantin Guslienko (UPV/EHU, San Sebastian, Spain).

The solitons and third dimension are of special interest in magnetic media, because employment of 3D magnetic solitons like hopfions, domain walls and Bloch points can open a route to create novel magnetic storage devices with a high density of information recording, new spintronic devices, and offer new breakthrough ideas in magnonics. The team plan to perform a comprehensive investigation of 3D magnetic solitons, including the necessary conditions for their formation and stability. The aim of our research is also to study the dynamics of 3D magnetic solitons and their interaction with elementary excitations of the magnetic medium, such as magnons and electrons. (

NCN SHENG: Spin waves in magnetic skyrmion crystals (SPINSKY)

(NoUMO-2018/30/Q/ST3/00416), coordinated by prof. Maciej Krawczyk (AMU) jointly with prof. Yan Zhou (The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, China).

The research aims to contribute to the two important application-related topics of modern magnetism: efficient generation of propagating short wavelength spin waves, and synchronization of the magnetization oscillations in nano-dots. Both objectives are critical for further development of the magnonics, spintronics fields of research, and SW-based devices. We propose to employ non-collinear topologically protected stable magnetic states coupled to the ferromagnetic film with the imprinted magnetization texture. Based on the skyrmion–spin wave interaction we will investigate artificial skyrmionic crystals to control spin-wave dynamic and their static properties, and to construct prototypes of magnonic logic devices.
