Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Magnetic materials and their static and dynamic properties form the heart of many modern technologies. Applications range from nanometer-sized storage technologies and sensors to electric motors and huge generators in wind turbines. A new class of magnetic applications uses not only magnetic fields, but also spin-polarized currents to manipulate and detect magnetization configurations. A very successful application of this technology is the hard disk read head which takes advantage of the spintronic effect of the giant magnetoresistance. Spintronics is a very active field of research with a very high potential for new storage and sensor technologies.

In this lecture different models for the efficient description of magnetic and spintronics applications are discussed. In addition, numerical methods and software packages for the calculation of the models are presented.
