Final Report - ULTRAMAGNETRON (Ultrafast All-Optical Magnetization Reversal for Magnetic Recording and Laser-Controlled Spintronics)

Project ID: 214469
Funded under: FP7-NMP


This is the final report for the ULTRAMAGNETRON project which aimed to develop 'opto-nano-magnetism' that is, the manipulation of the magnetic properties of nanomagnetic materials using (magneto-) optical effects, as a novel approach for future magnetic recording and information processing technology. In particular, the experts of the project investigated the effects of light on magnetic order at the nanoscale, optimised materials and conditions for highly efficient and ultrafast optical control of nanomagnets and in this way tried to initiate a development of novel technology for unprecedented fast (THz) magnetic recording and information processing.

The report provides a description of project context, objectives and the main scientific and technical results / foregrounds. It also reveals the potential economical, social, environmental and scientific impact of the project, and diagrams and photographs demonstrating and promoting the work.
