Research Highlights for Thin Film Quantum Materials

Revealing the dynamic behaviour of hidden layers in advanced magnetic materials

Diamond-Oxford-Shanghai team develops new synchrotron-based technique revealing the dynamics of individual spin modes at GHz frequencies with nanoscale sensitivity.

An international team of researchers has successfully tackled the challenge of making the three-dimensional structure of skyrmions visible. The scientists are from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, the Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory in Guangdong, the University of Oxford in Great Britain, the University of Messina, and the Polytechnic in Bari, Italy. Together, they were able to map the three-dimensional structure of Skyrmions for the first time.

First demonstration of transfer of spin angular momentum via coherent evanescent spin waves within an electrically insulating material.
