Andrii Chumak

The physicist Andrii Chumak is Professor of Nanomagnetism and Magnonics at the Faculty of Physics. Magnons are quanta of spin waves that propagate in magnetic materials having nano-scale wavelengths and carry information in the form of a spin angular momentum. The goal of the ERC Project “MagnonCircuits” (Nano-scale magnonic circuits for novel computing systems) is to explore the ways of using magnons as data carriers in next-generation low-loss computing systems. The main challenges addressed by the projects are the development of magnon conduits and circuits of sub-100 nm sizes and the understanding of nonlinear magnon scattering phenomena in them.
