Final Report - EMSWIM (Electromagnetic and spin wave interactions in magnetic nanostructure-based metamaterials and devices)

Project ID: 224944
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the final report of the EMSWIM project, which is funded under the European Commission (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This project studied the periodic nanostructures from the viewpoint of their optical, magneto-optical and spin-excitation response. It is hoped that research into their optical response will contribute to a range of scientific and technology areas.

Thanks to this project, grating parameters can now be monitored by measuring ellipsometry and/or MO spectroscopy. A model - capable of proposing and analysing novel artificial metamaterials and devices based on periodic nanostructures - was successfully applied in simulations. Research from this project has also proven that a geometric asymmetry is not needed to switch the chirality in vortex polarity. In future research, various lithographic patterns and magneto-photonic crystals will be measured and analysed.
