First General Action Meeting and Workshop

The workshop will be devoted to the emerging field of ultrafast opto-magneto-electronics, that combines the ideas and concepts of opto-magnetism and spin transport with photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and storage of information.

The explosive growth of digital data use and storage leads to an enormous rise in energy consumption, which is rapidly becoming unsustainable. Ultrafast opto-magneto-electronics is an emerging field that combines the ideas and concepts of opto-magnetism and spin transport with photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and storage of information. Both light and spin currents can control magnetic order, but mechanisms as well as corresponding time scales and energy dissipation differ. Therefore, the most promising development would be to bring together the best of both worlds, combining short time scales and non-dissipative propagation of light with nanoscale selectivity and strong interactions of spin currents. The ultimate goal will thus be to create and implement non-volatile, low-dissipative, and ultrafast functional elements for data technology. To assist in reaching of this goal, the proposed workshop aims to inform, coordinate and steer efforts from the communities of ultrafast magnetism, magneto-transport and photonics.
