Cold Opto-Magnetism for Random Access Devices

Project description

Fast and energy-efficient magnetic data storage using light pulses

Ultra-short light pulses allow data to be written in a magnetic memory in a fast and highly energy-efficient way. The overall objective of the EU-funded COMRAD project is to create an initial training network for early-stage researchers to gain a broad understanding of the challenges of opto-magnetic data storage development, from fundamental research to device failure analysis. Researchers will explore novel routes for the fastest possible and least dissipative magnetic switching in random access devices by merging ultrafast magnetism and spin-orbitronics. Magnetisation switching using light could be in the order of picoseconds, which is hundreds of times faster than what is possible with current information storage technology.
