Project B8

fs-Manipulation of Charge-Magnetism Coupling in an Antiferromagnetic Semiconductor

The main goal of project B8 is to realize femtosecond spin-to-charge and charge-to-spin conversion in an AF semiconductor.The intrinsic physical complexity of our project demands both a thorough investigation of the ground state of our sample material and a tight collaboration between experiments and theory. Experimentally, we will implement a procedure allowing to disclose the real-time evolution of both the spin and charge systems. Theoretically, state-of-the-art modelling is needed to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the equilibrium and non-equilibrium relevant properties, since they are both generated by many body effects, electronic correlations and spin-charge coupling which are all notoriously arduous to handle.
