In the context of spintronics and its applications, manipulating the magnetization at fast rates is a major goal. The SPOTZ project aims to unveil the (sub)picosecond dynamics of the magnetization induced by ultrashort current pulses, and in particular, by spin-orbit torques. Next, magnetization switching will be attempted by using ultrashort current pulses and the magneto-resistance will be studied in the THz regime in order to ultimately demonstrate a fully electrical and ultrafast nano-sized magnetic memory.
