Generation, control and detection of magnons

We will realize heterostructure materials based on 2D (anti)ferromagnetic layers through which magnons can be transported efficiently, thus enabling miniaturization. The electrically, optically or thermally generated magnons will be detected electrically using both well-established techniques, such as those based on spin Hall effect, and novel approaches. Special attention will be paid to electrostatic gating of the heterostructure material, which consist of magnon-carrying, -insulating, and -conducting gate layers allowing the electrostatic control of magnon flow and even control of the Neel and Curie temperatures.
