Post-doctoral Position: Magneto-electric transducers for Spin Wave Computing

We are offering a post-doc position (up to 30 months) to work on Magneto-electric transducers for Spin Wave Computing. It will be supervised by Sylvia Matzen (group: Oxides Integrated in Devices) and Thibaut Devolder (Novel Magnetic Devices group) and will be situated in the multidisciplinary research project CHIRON. The CHIRON project, funded by the European Commission (H2020-FETOPEN) and involving 9 partners, targets at groundbreaking research in spin wave computing and will kick-off in May 2018. A project overview can be found after the job description.

Master 2 internship offer: spin wave logic with domain wall waveguides

Scientific context

A periodic disturbance in local ferromagnetic ordering can propagate in a magnetic material in the form of a wave called a spin wave or a magnon. “Magnonics” is a field of research for the forthcoming beyond CMOS era; it harnesses magnons to transmit and process information using sophisticated spin wave devices and conduits.

Master 2 internship offer: magnon-magnon interactions for advanced wave-based computing

Scientific project:

CMOS technology through transistor scaling has been the main driver for the huge productivity growth registered over the past 50 years. However, transistor scaling is approaching its physical limits and new devices and architectures are being investigated to continue the performance scaling. To replace the silicon transistor, many devices have been proposed and are currently at varying levels of maturity – from ideas to experimental demonstrations. Devices with magnons (i.e. propagating waves formed by collective spin excitations) as a state variable is one of the promising concepts for wave-based computing.
