Coherent spin phenomena in solids

The main goal of our group is to control the magnetic and electronic properities of solids on the shortest possible timescale. In particular, we use femtosecond laser pulses to achieve ultrafast control of the spin and charge degrees of freedom without energy dissipation i.e. by exploiting coherent effects. The main experimental methods are:

The main material systems under study are:

  • Spin-textured and magnetically ordered two-dimensional electronic systems: 2D semiconductors, 2D antiferromagnets, topological insulators, quantum wells, ...
  • Hybrid molecular interfaces with non-trivial spin properties (molecular spinterfaces).
