Arbeitsgruppe Prof. Hillebrands

Welcome to the magnetism group!

We are dedicated to cutting-edge research in the field of magnonics and related areas combined with excellent teaching.

Magnonics is a subfield of spintronics, which addresses the utilization of the spin degree of freedom for applications in information and communication technologies. We study „magnetic waves“, which are spin waves and their quanta called magnons, and we address new fundamental phenomena and their potential for applications. A particular focus is on macroscopic quantum phenomena such as supercurrents and their utilization, as well as on the development of magnonic devices for the information technology.

Our research is embedded in the Collaborative Research Center 173 „Spin+X“ funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, as well as by several national, European and international projects. We offer opportunities for qualification in the frames of student assistantships, bachelor, master diploma and PhD projects in an international environment.



Kaiserslauterer Physiker für Lebensleistung in der Magnetismus-Forschung geehrt

Physik-Professor Dr. Burkard Hillebrands wird von der Magnetismus Society der internationalen Ingenieur-Vereinigung IEEE (Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers) mit dem Achievement Award geehrt. Damit würdigt die IEEE sein Lebenswerk in der Magnetismus-Forschung: „Für seine bahnbrechenden Beiträge auf dem Gebiet der Spindynamik, insbesondere in der Magnonik“. Hillebrands ist der erste Deutsche, der diese Auszeichnung erhält. Sie kann im Bereich des angewandten Magnetismus als weltweit höchste Ehrung angesehen werden. Hillebrands hat an der Technischen Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) den Lehrstuhl für Magnetismus inne. In seiner Forschung untersucht er unter anderem die Eigenschaften und Anwendungsmöglichkeiten von Magnon-Quantenteilchen und die Materialeigenschaften magnetischer Nanosysteme.
