Spin waves out of waste heat: Researchers present new findings on magnetic spin waves

This is a sketch of the thermal excitation of the magnetic sublattices, consisting of two Iron (Fe) and one Gadolinium (Gd) lattice sides: the excitation causes the emission of a magnetic spin wave, a so-called magnon, which propagates within the lattice. Image: Andreas Kehlberger
