Welcome to 3rd International Advanced School on Magnonics2018!

September 17-21, 2018

National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute" (KPI),
Kyiv, Ukraine

Magnonics – the study of spin waves – has recently seen a burst of activity, fuelled by the prospect of magnetic field-controlled metamaterials and devices, capable of data processing with propagating spin waves (magnons) as information carriers.

The International Advanced School on Magnonics 2018 (IASM’2018) builds upon the success of the previous events, held in St Margherita Ligure, Italy in 2012 (1st IASM) and in Exeter, UK in 2016 (2nd IASM), will feature an overview of and introduction into cutting-edge research in this exciting research field. The programme will cover both fundamental and applied aspects of magnonics, interaction between spin waves and other types of waves with emphasis on the structural complexity.

The School is aimed at both early stage researchers already working in magnonics and experienced researchers that would like to develop their research activities to this field. We believe that the time in Kyiv will also offer an excellent opportunity to share latest discoveries, to exchange opinions, and ideas, and to discuss future of spin wave research and prospects for creation of spin wave devices.

Sessions will be delivered by world-leading experts in magnonics, and correlated field of research.

Topics for the workshop include fundamental and applied aspects of magnonics, interaction between spin waves and other types of waves, theoretical and experimental approaches used in magnetization dynamics investigations:

  • magnetization dynamics,
  • nonlinear spin wave dynamics,
  • spin wave dynamics in a complex magnetization textures,
  • theory of spin waves and computational methods,
  • spin waves and antiferromagnetism,
  • spin-wave logic,
  • artificial crystals for spin-waves and magnonic applications: magnonic crystals, quasicrystals, fractal structures,
  • other related spin wave phenomena.
