- MAgneto-elastic coupling eXploitation for tunable and non-reciprocal rf Surface Acoustic Wave devices (« MAXSAW »), which will be coordinated by Thibaut Devolder and involves colleagues from INSP, CEA and FEMTO-ST. The project will likely start early in 2021.
- Magnon reservoir computing (“MARIN“) , which will be coordinated by Jean-Paul Adam and involves colleagues from IJL, CEA-SPEC, IPCMS, LABSTIC, SPINTEC and UMphi. The project will likely start early in 2021.
A periodic disturbance in local ferromagnetic ordering can propagate in a magnetic material in the form of a wave called a spin wave or a magnon. “Magnonics” is a field of research for the forthcoming beyond CMOS era; it harnesses magnons to transmit and process information using sophisticated spin wave devices and conduits.
