SEMINAR on 15th Dec 2015
Title: Magnetic Interface phenomena and their applications
Presenter: A/Prof. Mikhail Kostylev, School of Physics, UWA
When: 10:30 am
Location: LKM Theatre (AIIM Facility, Innovation Campus)
Perpendicular interface anisotropy and Dzyaloshinskii-Moryia interaction represent interface phenomena existing at interfaces of ferromagnetic metals with "heavy metals" - non-magnetic metals of platinum group characterised by strong spin-orbit coupling. In my talk I will discuss the influence of these phenomena on microwave spin dynamics in these materials and existing and potential applications of those phenomena - ranging from high-density hard drives for computers to detection of leakages of hydrogen gas in a new generation of cars - fuelled by hydrogen-gas based fuel cells.
Biography: Assoc/Prof Mikhail Kostylev completed his Ph.D. in Physics at St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University (SPETU), St. Petersburg, Russia in 1993. From 1993 to 1995 he stayed with School of Physics in Osnabruck University (Germany), having won a prestigious Post-doctoral Fellowship from German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). From 1995 to 2005 he was holding a tenured Assoc/Prof position at SPETU. He moved to UWA in 2005. Currently he is an Associate Professor with the School of Physics at UWA and leads Spintronics and Magnetisation Dynamics research group. Mikhail has co-authored more than 130 peer-reviewed publications in high impact journals such as Nature, Phys. Rev. Letters, Phys. Rev. B. Appl. Phys. Lett. etc.
