Topological Nanoelectronics Group

Our group is dedicated to exploring the appearance of and ways of utilizing the geometrical concepts and phenomena related to geometrical phases in the solid state for use in future nanoelectronics. As a group, we focus on novel response and transport effects in complex magnetic systems ranging from interfaces of transition metals to skyrmions. We make extensive use of the predictive power of density functional theory as our main tool for investigating topological phases in real materials, thereby bridging the gap between experimental advances and progress in theoretical understanding of topological effects in realistic materials. As a result, we dedicate a large part of our activities to developing first-principles methodologies for addressing the electron and spin properties which are rooted in the topological nature of electrons in solids, constantly contributing to development of FLEUR and Wannier tools. Currently, we actively pursue the fields of orbitronics, ultrafast magnetism, topological magnetism, two-dimensional magnetic materials, complex spin textures and spin dynamics, algebraic methods in magnetism, and foundations of density functional theory.
