We explore our results for applications in fields such as spintronics (e.g. the ultrafast control of magnetic bits) and THz photonics. Here, the development of new emitters and detectors of THz radiation plays an important role since the THz range is still relatively difficult to access. For example, we have used the spintronic structure of Figure 2 above to develop a novel emitter of THz radiation that is more efficient and broadband than established emitters.
The short movie gives a preview of spintronic THz emitters at work in the lab.
