Brno Ph.D. Talent

Ondřej Wojewoda

Nanoscale Magnonics

Lector: Michal Urbánek

Institution: Brno University of Technology, CEITEC VUT

Field: Advanced Materials and Nanosciences


About the project

One of the most promising candidates for beyond-CMOS technology is magnonics. The magnonic concepts were extensively studied and proved at a microscale. However, nowadays, this field's biggest challenge is to shrink the device dimensions and spin-wave wavelengths to the tens of nanometers. In the proposed project, we will develop a new methodology based on near-field optical elements and nanoscale microwave antennas to test magnonic concepts at the nanoscale and to design nano-magnonic devices.


Why science?

In the following years I want to gain lot of experiences by conducting research in the field of the nanoscale magnonics. After I finish my PhD studies, I want to apply for the post-doc position in group with focus to magnetization dynamics. With the obtained knowledge and experiences I would like to build and lead a research team.


What do I like most about Brno

Brno is inherently the student city. You can feel this fact on a every corner of the city. The city provides lot of opportunities for studying, doing sports, or just chilling in one of hundreds of pubs.
