News and Research Highlights

Advances and challenges in single-molecule electron transport

1 Aug 2020, 8:00

source: Reviews of Modern Physics

A thorough review on measurement techniques and recent theories on electronic transport in single molecule magnets coauthored by R. Korytár just appeared in Reviews of Modern Physics.

Recent developments in Siesta

source: Siesta

A review of the present status, recent enhancements, and applicability of the Siesta program is presented in a new paper in The Journal of Chemical Physics with a contribution by R. Korytár.

Antiferromagnetic Spintronics

24 Jun 2020, 10:00

source: Physical Review Materials

Our ab initio calculations as well as collaboration with experiment have resulted in two recent publications on CuMnAs properties. In the first one, the finite temperature magnetism and resistivity of antiferromagnetic CuMnAs is described. The second one studies electrical transport properties of bulk tetragonal CuMnAs.

Dynamics due to femtosecond laser pulse

22 May 2020, 22:00

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.


Our group also participates in COST Action Nanoscale Coherent Hybrid Devices for Superconducting Quantum Technologies (Nanocohybri), supported by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST)
