Relativistic Néel-order fields induced by electrical current in antiferromagnets.
We predict that a lateral electrical current in antiferromagnets can induce nonequilibrium Néel-order fields, i.e., fields whose sign alternates between the spin sublattices, which can triggerExpand
Terahertz conductivity and ultrafast dynamics of photoinduced charge carriers in intrinsic 3C and 6H silicon carbide
The terahertz (THz) conductivity of photoinduced charge carriers in two common polytypes of silicon carbide, 3C-SiC and 6H-SiC, is studied on picosecond time scales using an optical-pump THz-probeExpand
Terahertz field enhancement via coherent superposition of the pulse sequences after a single optical-rectification crystal
Terahertz electromagnetic pulses are frequently generated by optical rectification of femtosecond laser pulses. In many cases, the efficiency of this process is known to saturate with increasingExpand
Atomically sharp domain walls in an antiferromagnet
The interest in understanding scaling limits of magnetic textures such as domain walls spans the entire field of magnetism from its relativistic quantum fundamentals to applications in informationExpand
Coherent terahertz control of antiferromagnetic spin waves
Researchers report the direct observation of ultrafast magnetic dynamics using the magnetic component of highly intense terahertz wave pulses with a time resolution of 8 fs. This concept provides aExpand
Antiferromagnetic CuMnAs multi-level memory cell with microelectronic compatibility
It is shown that elementary-shape memory cells fabricated from a single-layer antiferromagnet CuMnAs deposited on a III–V or Si substrate have deterministic multi-level switching characteristics that allow for counting and recording thousands of input pulses and responding to pulses of lengths downscaled to hundreds of picoseconds.

How to manipulate magnetic states of antiferromagnets.
Four main methods (magnetic, strain, electrical, and optical) to mediate the magnetic states and elaborate on intrinsic origins of different antiferromagnetic materials are introduced and a new perspective on antiferromeagnetic spintronics is provided. Expand
Dissecting spin-phonon equilibration in ferrimagnetic insulators by ultrafast lattice excitation
It is shown that spin manipulation by phonons can be extended to antiferromagnets and into the terahertz frequency range and is relevant for all insulating ferrimagnets. Expand
Advances in magnetoelectric multiferroics
Progress in the fundamental understanding and design of new multiferroic materials, advances in characterization and modelling tools to describe them, and usage in applications are reviewed. Expand
