Spin Cavitronics

Mainz, Germany: May 15th - 18th 2018

Cavity (quantum) electrodynamics, originally invented in order to enhance matter-light interaction in atomic physics, has developed into an ubiquitous technique to study condensed matter systems, such as semiconductor quantum dots, diamond NV centers, donor spins in silicon, Josephson-junction qubits, nanomechanical systems, etc. Recently, ferromagnets in cavities have been shown to hybridize with microwaves and (more weakly) with light photons. We observe now the emergence of the interdisciplinary field “Spin Cavitronics” that brings together the optical and microwave cavity communities with researchers from magnetism and spintronics, also involving superconductivity, plasmonics, phononics, mechanics, and AMO groups. The present workshop is intended to facilitate interaction between the leaders of these fields and lure prospective newbies.

Applications to participate in the workshop will open at least six months prior to the workshop. If your application is accepted, you will need to register for the workshop and pay the non-refundable workshop fee of 500 euros by April 5th, 2018. The workshop fee will cover your stay in the Schloss Waldthausen and meals during the workshop.
