- Elektrisch gesteuerter Magnontransport in magnetisch geordneten Isolatoren
Angular momentum transport in magnetically ordered insulators is carried by magnetic excitation quanta in contrast to magnetic conductors, where mobile charge carrier also carry angular momentum. In magnetically ordered insulator/normal metal hybrids it is possible to study the transport of angular momentum by all-electrical means via the spin Hall and inverse spin Hall effect in the normal metal. The focus of this project is the investigation of possibilities to manipulate the angular momentum transport in the magnetically ordered insulator by electrical means and by finite size effects. In addition, another goal is the enhancement of the sensitivity of the currently existing measurement setup and the realization of new measurement protocols in hard- and software.
An ambitious master student with good analytical skills is required to carry out these experiments on all-electrical magnon transport. One part of the thesis is the fabrication of nanometer sized devices for the experiments via electron beam lithography and UHV sputtering. The properties of these devices will be analyzed using magnetotransport experiments in superconducting magnet cryostats. Another important aspect is the realization of more sophisticated measurement methods, aiming for a enhancement in sensitivity, a better signal-to-noise ratios and a higher versatility of the measurement protocols
