Spin dynamics in low dimensional systems

Magnons are the elementary magnetic excitations in a magnetically ordered solid. The physical properties of magnons strongly depend on their wave-vector (wavelength). If the wavelength is comparable to the lattice constant, the magnons are governed by the microscopic exchange interaction and hence the experimental results on such magnon modes provide a true microscopic picture of the system.  

For more details please take a look at the experimental setup.

Our results can be devided into three sections:

1. Magnon excitations in ferromagnetic monolayers

2. The influence of the spin-orbit coupling on high wave-vector magnons

3. Elementary excitations on ferromagnetic oxide surfaces
