We recently reported on a method to determine the easy axis position in a 10 nm thick film of the fully compensated antiferromagnet CuMnAs. The film had a uniaxial magnetic anisotropy and the technique utilized a magneto-optical pump and probe experiment [Nature Photonics 11, 91 (2017)]. In this contribution we discuss the applicability of this method for the investigation of a broader set of epitaxial CuMnAs films having different thicknesses. This work reveals that the equilibrium magnetic…

Optically-triggered strain-driven N\'{e}el vector manipulation in a metallic antiferromagnet
The absence of stray fields, their insensitivity to external magnetic fields, and ultrafast dynamics make antiferromagnets promising candidates for active elements in spintronic devices. Here, we

Quasi-nondegenerate pump–probe magnetooptical experiment in GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure based on spectral filtration
We report on a quasi-nondegenerate pump-probe technique that is based on spectral-filtration of femtosecond laser pulses by a pair of mutually-spectrally-disjunctive interference filters. This cost-
Antiferromagnetic spintronics
The emerging fi eld of antiferromagnetic spintronics focuses on making antiferromagnets active elements of spintronic devices [2–4]. From an application point of view, it explores how to read,

High electrical and optical resistive switching in a thin-film antiferromagnet
Ferromagnets and antiferromagnets represent two fundamental forms of magnetism with antiferromagnets being the more abundant of the two but notoriously hard to explore and exploit. Recent

Antiferromagnetic spin textures and dynamics
Antiferromagnets provide greater stability than their ferromagnetic counterparts, but antiferromagnetic spin textures and nanostructures also exhibit more complex, and often faster, dynamics,
Comprehensive view on ultrafast dynamics of ferromagnetic films
The relaxation mechanisms in magnetic thin films studied in all-optical pump probe experiments involve electrons, spin and lattice as well as the different couplings in between those. With this
Experimental observation of spin-dependent electron many-body effects in CdTe
In semiconductors, the spin degree of freedom is usually disregarded in the theoretical treatment of electron many-body effects such as band-gap renormalization and screening of the Coulomb
