Dioscuri Centre for spincaloritronics and magnonics


The Dioscuri Center for Spincaloritronics and Magnonics will be established in October 2023 with a core mission of exploring spincaloritronics and magnonics in compensated magnetic materials. The Dioscuri program was initiated by the Max Planck Society and it is equally supported from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports.

Our primary focus is on basic research, but with a clear application potential to develop concepts for sustainable and energy-efficient information technology. We utilize cutting-edge tools such as nanolithography and magneto-thermal transport measurements. Furthermore, we are actively working on advancing spatially resolved techniques to enhance our capabilities.

The center will primarily operate as an experimental group, leveraging its expertise in this domain. However, its strength will be further amplified through its close collaboration with both the theory department and the entire Department of Spintronics and Nanoelectronics. On the German side the Center is supported by Prof Sebastian T. B. Goennenwein.
