Selected Topics in Physics
Magnetism - from fundamental effects to applications
Days and hours:
- Tuesdays 16:15–18:00 hrs.
- Room: Lecture Hall B (R. 0.1.01), Arnimallee 14
- First Seminar: 15. October 2013
Students in the Master course "Physics" or related Master courses.
Type of study:
Seminar (presentations by the participants).
Registration:Important! Students in the Master course "Physics" have to register until 01. November 2013 in the Campus Management System in order to take the module.
5 credit points are awarded for the successful completion of the module "Selected Topics in Physics".
Students of the master course in physics will get the certification directly through the Campus Management System. All other students will get a paper certificate.
If you need a paper certificate in addition to the certification in the Campus Management System, please send an e-mail to Mrs. Badow.
The presentations will cover various aspects of modern magnetism research. Interesting fundamental effects will be presented that have led to or are envisioned to lead to practical applications. Some examples are:
- Giant magnetoresistance
- Spin-dependent tunneling
- Spin-torque effect
- Current-induced domain wall motion
- Molecular magnetism
- Interlayer exchange coupling
- Magneto-electric coupling
- All-optical magnetization reversal
- Exchange bias
Further topics may be suggested by the students.
