PD Dr. Oleksandr Dobrovolskiy receives FWF funding for the project "CurviMag"


The joint German-Austrian (DFG-FWF) project "Curvature-Induced Effects in Magnetic Nanostructures" deals with complex magnetic states and their dynamics in 3D curved magnetic nano-architectures

Magnetism in curvilinear geometries has emerged as a rapidly developing domain of modern magnetism with numerous exciting theoretical predictions and strong application potential. The main objective of the project is to adapt advanced nanofabrication and characterization techniques for the realization of curved magnetic shell structures as well as to investigate complex magnetic states and their dynamics therein both experimentally and theoretically.

The project is conducted by four Partner Teams led by:

  • Prof. Dr. Michael Huth, Head of the group Thin Films and Nanostructures, Physics Institute, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany
  • PD Dr. Oleksandr Dobrovolskiy, Head of the SuperSpin Lab, Nanomagnetism and Magnonics, Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna, Austria
  • PD Dr. Attila Kákay, Head of the group Curvilinear Micromagnetism, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Dresden, Germany
  • Dr. Denys Makarov, Head of the department Intelligent Materials and Systems, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Dresden, Germany

A PhD student position at the SuperSpin Lab will be announced via the Job Center in September 2020. The position is to be filled from January 2021 on. Qualified motivated candidates are encouraged to apply online.
