About the Project

A skyrmion is a vortex-like spin-phenomenon that can be formed in magneticmaterials and have proven themselves as promising candidates as bits in the future data storage technology: they are extremely compact i.e. down to about 1 nm, have a low energy consumption and a high stability. Although much research is already carried out within materials science targeting better control of the skyrmions, only a few methods are available for measuring skyrmions, and those are mostly found in non-ambient conditions within research facilities. Recent theoretical studies have found that skyrmions can oscillate with frequencies in the terahertz (THz) range, and hence interact with THz waves.

This project will be carried out in the group of Terahertz Photonics at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. Here, we will take advantage of our in-house facility for THz spectroscopy and microscopy to build a new optical sensor for reading of skyrmions. The project will concern design of artificial skyrmion samples, development of our existing THz time-domain spectroscopy setup to adapt to the vortex-like nature of skyrmions, and characterization of the skyrmionic samples. The successful candidate will be a part of an international research team specialized within THz measurements of material properties.
