Antiferromagnetic Spintronics: from topology to neuromorphic computing
The new field of antiferromagnetic spintronics focuses on making antiferromagnets active elements of spintronic devices. The higher complexity of the ordered phase and parameter space in antiferromagnets have given rise to new avenues of basic research that range from topological quasiparticle dynamic manipulation, multipole order effects, ultra-fast dynamics, and even applications towards neuromorphic computing and IoT.
The new field is of interest to the strongly correlated effects community and the community focused on topological matter. It has connected to the current ferromagnetic spintronics research by creating entirely new ways of rethinking spin phenomena in antiferromagnets, while benefiting from the pioneering works in antiferromagnetic materials.
