Topological semimetals have recently attracted great attention due to prospective applications governed by their peculiar Fermi surfaces. Weyl semimetals host chiral fermions that manifest as pairs of non-degenerate massless Weyl points in their electronic structure, giving rise to novel macroscopic quantum phenomena such as the chiral anomaly, an...

Spin-momentum locking in topological insulators and materials with Rashba-type interactions is an extremely attractive feature for novel spintronic devices and is therefore under intense investigation. Significant efforts are underway to identify new material systems with spin-momentum locking, but also to create heterostructures with new spintroni...

We show that the presence of a transiently excited hot electron gas in graphene leads to a substantial broadening of the C 1s line probed by time-resolved x-ray photoemission spectroscopy. The broadening is found to be caused by an exchange of energy and momentum between the photoemitted core electron and the hot electron gas, rather than by vibrat...

The spin of the electron is nowadays replacing the charge as basic carrier of information not only in spintronics applications, but also in the emerging field of quantum information. Topological quantum materials, where spin-momentum locking is believed to lead to particularly long spin lifetimes, are regarded as a promising platform for such appli...

The discovery of topological states of matter has led to a revolution in materials research. When external or intrinsic parameters break certain symmetries, global properties of topological materials change drastically. A paramount example is the emergence of Weyl nodes under broken inversion symmetry, acting like magnetic monopoles in momentum spa...

Core level binding energies and absorption edges are at the heart of many experimental techniques concerned with element-specific structure, electronic structure, chemical reactivity, elementary excitations and magnetism. X-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS) in particular, can provide information about the electronic and vibrational many-body int...

Article
Photoelectron spectroscopy is our main tool to explore the electronic structure of novel material systems, the properties of which are often determined by an intricate interplay of competing interactions. Elucidating the role of this interactions requires studies over an extensive range of energy, momentum, length, and time scales. We show that imm...

JuSPARC, the Jülich Short-Pulsed Particle and Radiation Center, is a laser-driven facility to enable research with short-pulsed photon and particle beams to be performed at the Forschungszentrum Jülich. The conceptual design of JuSPARC is determined by a set of state-of-the-art time-resolved instruments, which are designed to address the electronic...

Hemispherical deflection analyzers are the most widely used energy filters for state-of-the-art electron spectroscopy. Due to the high spherical symmetry, they are also well suited as imaging energy filters for electron microscopy. Here, we review the imaging properties of hemispherical deflection analyzers with emphasis on the application for cath...

A stable BiI3 monosheet has been grown for the first time on the (0001) surface of the topological insulator Bi2Se3 as confirmed by scanning tunnelling microscopy, surface X-ray diffraction, and X-ray photoemision spectroscopy. BiI3 is deposited by molecular beam epitaxy from the crystalline BiTeI precursor that undergoes decomposition sublimation....

Quantum confinement permits the existence of multiple terahertz magnon modes in atomically engineered ultrathin magnetic films and multilayers. By means of spin-polarized high-resolution electron energy-loss spectroscopy, we report on the direct experimental detection of all exchange-dominated terahertz confined magnon modes in a 3 ML Co film. We d...

A fundamental need in wireless communication and modern computer processors is to fabricate faster, smaller, and lower power-consumption circuits. A promising approach is the utilization of spin waves, or rather, magnons in ferromagnetic films. Quantum confinement in ultra-thin films permits the coexistence of several exchange-dominated magnon mode...

In the past decades, mesocrystal, a kind of nanocrystals with specific crystallographic orientation, has drawn a lot of attention due to its intriguing functionalities. While the research community keeps searching for new mesocrystal systems, it is equally crucial to develop new approaches to tune the properties of mesocrystals. In this work, a sel...
Article
We report on the direct observation of a large unusual antiferromagnetic exchange interaction in Fe(001) films. By measuring the magnon dispersion relation over the entire Brillouin zone of an ultrathin Fe(001) film on Rh(001), we demonstrate that the signature of this unusual antiferromagnetic exchange interaction can be observed at the high-symme...

We present a comprehensive study of magnetic properties and highwave-vector magnon excitations in epitaxial Fe(001) films grown on Ir(001) substrate. Themagnetic properties are investigated by magneto-optical Kerr effect for various thicknesses of Fe film from 4 up to 27 monolayers. The magnon dispersion relation is obtained by means of spin-polari...

A new way to induce a large magnetoresistance has been achieved by self-assembled nanostructures consisting of ferromagnetic spinel CoFe2 O4 (CFO) and metallic perovskite SrRuO3 (SRO). The interdiffused Fe(3+) ions in SRO have paved the way to strong magnetic couplings with CFO nanopillars, resulting in the suppression of spin-polarized electron sc...
Article
We report on an experimental observation of high-energy magnon excitations in ultrathin ferromagnetic films with a perpendicular easy axis. We demonstrate that a transversally spin-polarized beam can be used to excite and probe the high-energy magnons within spin-polarized electron energy-loss spectroscopy experiments. The magnon dispersion relatio...

Complex oxide nanocrystals with a spinel structure show their remarkable optical, electronic, mechanical, thermal, and magnetic properties. In this study, we present a simple yet versatile strategy to grow self-assembled epitaxial CoFe2O4 nanocrystals with well-controlled size (less than 10 nm) and single orientation. CoFe2O4 nanocrystals were fabr...

In the past decade, self-assembled vertical nano-heterostructures have drawn considerable attention because a high interface-to-volume ratio can be used to tailor or create functionalities. We have systematically investigated the magnetic properties of oxide heterostructures consisting of the CoFe2O4 nanopillars embedded in the BiFeO3 matrix using...

Hybrid nanoparticles (NPs) composed of multiple components offer new opportunities for next-generation materials. In this study, a paradigm for the noble metal/ternary complex oxide hybrid NPs is reported by adopting pulsed laser ablation in liquids. As model hybrids, gold-spinel heterodimer (Au-CoFe(2) O(4) ) and gold-pervoskite heterodimer (Au-Sr...

Simulation and experiment are performed to investigate the influence of onion states with different-helicity pair vortices on the magnetization reversal process. It is found that for the onion state that has pair vortices with the same helicity, flux-closure state occurs in the reversal process; for the onion state that has pair vortices with oppos...

Different arrangements of notches as nucleation sites are demonstrated experimentally and numerically to effectively control the magnetization processes of permalloy rings. In the ring with notches at the same side with respect to field direction, two same-helicity vortex domain walls in the onion state lead to two-step switching going through flux...

Magnetization reversals in permalloy rings controlled by nucleation sites using triangular fins at the same side and diagonal with respect to the field direction are demonstrated by magnetoresistance measurement and micromagnetic simulation. In the ring with triangular fins at the same side, there exists two-step reversal from onion to flux-closure...

Field evolution of two types of mixed states made of four vortex cores and two anti-vortex cores are investigated numerically. The two types of mixed states both consist of one rhombic domain and one or two cross-tie walls. The two mixed states are found to exhibit different magnetization processes. As the field is applied along the long side direc...
