Lecture & Science

Public evening lecture as part of the international symposium "Spins, waves and interactions 2024"

by J-Professor Dr. Angela Wittmann (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Institute of Physics) and Dr. Alexander Mook (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Institute of Physics)

Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing our world - but the enormous hunger for data is pushing our electronics to their limits. New, more energy-efficient data processing technologies are urgently needed to meet this social challenge of the 21st century.
In this lecture, we will dive together into the fascinating world of spintronics. This field of research uses the quantum mechanical property of spin of electrons to develop innovative and sustainable technologies of tomorrow.

Angela Wittmann has been Junior Professor of Experimental Solid State Physics at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz since 2021. Her research focuses on the exploration of electron spin in novel material systems - especially at interfaces between molecules and magnetic films. After completing her doctorate in 2019 at the University of Cambridge (UK) under the supervision of Prof. Henning Sirringhaus in the field of organic semiconductors, she deepened her knowledge during a research stay at MIT in Boston (USA), where she investigated antiferromagnetic films in the group of Prof. Geoffrey Beach.


Since 2022, Alexander Mook has been leading an Emmy Noether Junior Research Group at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz with the support of the German Research Foundation. He researches topological phenomena in the dynamics of magnetic materials. He previously studied physics at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and completed his doctorate in 2017 in Prof. Ingrid Mertig's group at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle. A Georg H. Endress scholarship gave him the opportunity to spend three years researching at the University of Basel in Switzerland under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Loss. He then became a junior group leader in Prof. Johannes Knolle's working group at the Technical University of Munich. Alexander Mook is also a sub-project leader in the Collaborative Research Center 'Spin+X - The Spin in its Collective Environment'.


Moderation: Professor Dr. Markus Münzenberg
