Lecture: Magnetic resonance and spin waves


 Time, Place:

Tuesday 14:15 - 15:45, AP SR 222


Prof. Dr. Sergej Demokritov

Prof. Dr. Cornelius Faber




The special lecture "Magnetic resonance and spin waves" is aimed at students of physics (Bachelor / Master / Diplom) in the 5th or 7 Semester. After a brief introduction of para-and ferro-magnetism lecture deals with the equations of motion to describe dynamic phenomena in magnetic systems. The basics of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) and the theoretical formalism to describe them are a focus of the lecture. The main relaxation processes in NMR and nonlinear NMR will be discussed in detail. Furthermore, recent applications in NMR spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are presented. Finally, spin waves in ferromagnets and their properties will be pointed out.
