THz-Radiation Generated from Interfacial Spin-Orbit Coupling

May 18, 2018 - Electromagnetic terahertz (THz) radiation is a versatile tool for a wide variety of sensing technologies ranging from security systems to medical applications.  Commonly, THz radiation is created using photoconductive switches and nonlinear crystals.  Recently, it was shown that optical excitation of fast spin current pulses in magnetic materials may generate strong THz radiation from transverse spin transport phenomena.

Selections from 2017: The Age of a 4-Star System

January 11, 2018- Dr. James MacDonald and Dr. Dermott Mullan recently derived the age of the quadruple star system KIC 7177553. The system appears to be younger than originally thought — it’s best modeled as being 32–36 million years old.

Unraveling quantum states of charge and spin in topological spintronics

August 11, 2017 - In the recent Nano Letters article, Prof. Nikolic, postdoctral fellow Dr. Kapildeb Dolui, visiting graduate student Juan Manuel Marmolejo-Tejada from Colombia and DPA alumni Dr. Po-Hao Chang, together with collaborators from Denmark and Croatia, have developed new computational approach offering a unique microscopic insight into quantum states of charge and spin at  topological-insulator/ferromagnetic-metal (TI/FM) interfaces.
