Master Thesis: Ultrafast Spintronics using Terahertz Spectroscopy
What is terahertz? Terahertz (THz) electromagnetic waves have frequencies of about 1012 Hz
and photon energies of 1-100 meV. THz pulses are perfectly suited as probe for numerous excitations in all states of matter,
such as phonons, magnons, excitons, or rotations and vibrations of molecules and many more.
Project:Using ultrashort (1015 s)
light pulses we want to manipulate and control electron spins in solids. To this end, we make use
of THz emission spectroscopy to monitor the spin dynamics inside magnetic / nonmagnetic multilayers.
This approach opens a whole new playground addressing both: fundamental physics and
