1st Summer School Magnetofon

The School will be devoted to the emerging field of ultrafast opto-magneto-electronics, that combines the ideas and concepts of ultrafast magnetization dynamics with spin transport. 

The explosive growth of digital data use and storage leads to an enormous rise in energy consumption, which is rapidly becoming unsustainable. Ultrafast opto-magneto-electronics is an emerging field that combines the ideas and concepts of opto-magnetism and spin transport with photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and storage of information. Both light and spin currents can control magnetic order, but mechanisms as well as corresponding time scales and energy dissipation differ. Therefore, the most promising development would be to bring together the best of both worlds, combining short time scales and non-dissipative propagation of light with nanoscale selectivity and strong interactions of spin currents. The goal of the School will thus be to educate PhDs and postdocs working in this and adjacent areas, in fundamentals of magnetism, magnetization dynamics, spin transport and related.

The COST Action should be able to reimburse the travel and accommodation costs for students, within reasonable limits. We estimate to support about 40 PhD students and Post-doctoral Researchers with up to 250 € for travel expenses and up to 500€ for accomodation. Master studens are not eligible for this support. All this process will take place via COST website. More details will be available soon. 



COST is supported by the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020
