The objective of this work is to understand and implement the THz timescale switching speeds of antiferromagnetic materials for ultra-fast spin to charge conversion in topologically enabled devices.
The chosen fellow will study spin dynamics in a variety of antiferromagnetic and topological insulator materials and heterostructures.
The fellow might also travel to national laboratories/neutron sources to conduct polarized neutron reflectometry experiments to probe the magnetization characteristics at embedded interfaces.
The fellow will work as part of a large NRL program comprised of fabrication, characterization and theory efforts whose scientific goals are to maximize efficiency in the next generation of low power computing technology, information processing, on-chip THz communication and in-logic memory.
