New ANR projects funded!

The NOMADE group has secured funding for two projects in the latest ANR Call for Projects:

  • Chaos-based information processing with magnetic nano-oscillators (CHIPMuNCS),  coordinated by Joo-Von Kim and involve colleagues at the Laboratoire Matériaux Optiques, Photonique et Systèmes (CentraleSupélec/Univ. Lorraine), Institut Jean Lamour (CNRS/Univ. Lorraine), and Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales.
  • Topological properties of magnetic skyrmions and opportunities for novel spintronic devices (TOPSKY),  coordinated by Vincent Cros of Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales and involve colleagues from the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides (CNRS/Univ. Paris-Sud), Institut Néel (CNRS/Univ. Grenoble), Laboratoire Charles Coulomb (CNRS/Univ. Montpellier), and the CEA Saclay.

Postdoc offer: Magnetoresistive detection of confined spin waves in domain walls


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. The standard spin wave conduits rely on spin waves in in-plane magnetized materials. There the spin waves are difficult to guide in curved conduits because of their anisotropic dispersion properties. Besides, miniaturization to deep sub-micron dimensions is a challenge as spin waves are sensitive to structural changes such as lithography-induced roughness at the conduit edges.

SWANGATE project kicks off

The ANR SWANGATE project has officially started with a kick-off meeting held at the Institut Jean Lamour (IJL) in Nancy. The aim of the project is to develop new magnonic devices based on spin wave channelling with magnetic domain walls. The project is coordinated by Prof. Michel Hehn at IJL and will involve researchers from the Institut de Physique et de Chimie des Matériaux de Strasbourg, Technische Universtität Kaiserslautern, and the NOMADE group.

The NOMADE group has an open position related to this project.
