News and Research Highlights

Dynamics due to femtosecond laser pulse

source: Physical Review B

In a short period two of our papers on ultrafast magnetization dynamics due to femtosecond laser pulse has been accepted and published in Phys. Rev B. The first one studies laser-induced dynamics of a magnetic domain walls, while the second one focuses on THz spin waves generation due to superdiffusive spin transport.

Tracking ultrafast energy flow

source: Physical Review B

A recent paper with contribution by K. Carva, suggested by Phys. Rev. B editor, studies ultrafast nonequilibrium energy flow between electronic and lattice degrees of freedom in crystalline nickel. By combining ab initio calculations with ultrafast diffuse electron scattering, the authors provide a detailed understanding of the complex nonequilibrium energy transfer between electrons and phonons in laser-excited Ni metal.

Our group also participates in COST Action Nanoscale Coherent Hybrid Devices for Superconducting Quantum Technologies, supported by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST). For more information see a recent video on YouTube.

Photon emission micromaser

T. Chlouba and T. Novotný studied a micromaser model based on a solid-state setup with a double quantum dot. They analyzed the method of full counting statistics used for the prediction of the bistability and identified a likely cause behind its failure.
