Welcome to the Goennenwein group

AG Modern Materials Science

Our scientific work focuses on the fabrication and investigation of multifunctional magnetic heterostructures and devices. We use magnetotransport, spin caloritronics and spin dynamics experiments to unravel the properties of thin films and nanostructures with complex magnetic textures or interesting topological features. In addition, we work on spin physics of fluctuations and spin current noise within the framework of SFB 1432.
