Project Title: Electric-field control of spin waves: towards new-generation magnonic devices.

Objectives: Growth of suitable ferromagnetic-ferroelectric heterostructures; to achieve efficient routing of magnetic spin waves in ferromagnetic-ferroelectric bilayers (including re-direction by 90°); to attain voltage control of spin wave transmission between two patterned antennas.

Expected results: Utilization of ferromagnetic-ferroelectric bilayers with regular ferroelectric domains to control spin wave propagation (routing) by magnetic and electric fields; proof of electric-field control of spin wave transmission/interference; first electrically reconfigurable magnonic crystal prototypes.

Aalto University is a Finnish multidisciplinary university in the fields of science and technology, economics, architecture, and art and design. Aalto University employs ~370 professors and has a student body of 20 000, 70 % of which are students in science and technology. Aalto University was founded in 2010 by merging three Finnish universities: The Helsinki School of Economics, The University of Art and Design Helsinki, and Helsinki University of Technology. The three schools were all leading and renowned institutions in their respective fields and in their own right. The School of Science (SCI) combines cutting-edge research with high-level education and learning. The site of research and training is the Department of Applied Physics, which is part of SCI at Aalto University. Prof. Sebastiaan van Dijken heads the Nanomagnetism and Spintronics (NanoSpin) group (https://www.aalto.fi/department-of-applied-physics/nanomagnetism-and-spintronics-nanospin). Research in the NanoSpin group focuses on experimental investigations of electric-field controlled magnetism and magnonics.

BeMAGIC project is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network that offers the possibility to pursue the PhD within the Network at different universities/research centres/companies across Europe. The duration of the appointment is 3 years, starting in March 2020, and the annual salary at Aalto University is 43400 €. Importantly, the Marie Curie eligibility criteria must be respected. Eligible early-stage researchers (ESRs) are those who are, at the date of recruitment by the host institution, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate. In addition, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Researchers can be nationals of any country (including all countries outside Europe).

Application procedure: Interested applicants should provide a full CV and a letter of interest on the following website: https://bemagic-etn.eu/project/offered-esr-positions
