metrology of magnetization dynamic and chirality in thin films – MEDYNA

Submission summary

Magnetization dynamics at the electronic time scale (femtosecond and picosecond) remains a field of intense research twenty years after the first groundbreaking studies. Efforts to understand and control these dynamics is sustained not only by fundamental interest, but also by technological applications: major companies such as Seagate are investing massively in R&D for developing data storage devices based on magneto-optical effects and technologies based on ultrafast lasers in order to speed current technologies at GHz. In this context, developing metrology able to access the spin structure in magnetic materials with sub-nanometer spatial resolution at GHz frequencies is of paramount strategic importance.
