MA 29: Focus Session: Magnon Polarons – Magnon-Phonon Coupling and Spin Transport (joint session MA/HL)
Mittwoch, 18. März 2020, 09:30–13:00, HSZ 04
The coupling of spin waves and atomic lattice vibrations in solid magnetic states, so-called magnon polarons (MPs), can have large impact on spin transport properties as recently explored for spin-Seebeck effect, spin pumping and nonlocal spin transport. This resonant enhancement can be reached when the magnon dispersion is shifted by a magnetic field and crosses the phonon dispersion with sufficient overlap. While initially observed at low temperatures and large magnetic fields, further material and device developments have led to MPs at room temperature and moderate magnetic fields. Thus, MPs become important for the manipulation and amplification of spin currents in spintronic and spin caloritronic devices, e.g. by carrying the spins much further than using uncoupled magnons. This focus session highlights the main important research outcomes for MPs, state-of-the-art techniques to detect MPs, such as Brillouin light scattering and neutron scattering, and to study MP transport, e.g. by spin Seebeck effect and nonlocal spin transport, as well as the investigation of MPsin different material classes such as garnets, ferrites and antiferromagnets. In addition, the excessive theoretical work on MPs performed recently is addressed in this focus session.
