Magnonics deals with dynamic excitations of magnetically ordered materials. These excitations—magnons—constitute a powerful tool for data processing on the micro and nanoscale. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the fundamentals and current trends in coherent magnonics. I will discuss the implementation in magnetic systems of novel concepts borrowed from integrated optics. Examples are directional couplers and quantum-classical analogy devices, such as a magnonic Stimulated Raman Adiabatic Passage (STIRAP) device. Also, I will address macroscopic quantum phenomena, such as coherent magnon Bose-Einstein condensates, and will present a way to enable room-temperature quantum computing functionalities using magnon condensates.
