Ultrafast spin dynamics: the effect of colored noise.

The effect of the noise correlation time on the ultrafast demagnetization rate is demonstrated and a thermodynamically correct phenomenological Landau-Lifshitz-Miyasaki-Seki approach is introduced.

Thermal Fluctuations of a Single-Domain Particle

A sufficiently fine ferromagnetic particle has a uniform vector magnetization whose magnitude is essentially constant, but whose direction fluctuates because of thermal agitation. The fluctuations

The aim of this paper is to express the effects of basic dissipative mechanisms involved in the dynamics of the magnetization field in terms of the one most commonly observed quantity: the spatial

Paradigm of the time-resolved magneto-optical Kerr effect for femtosecond magnetism

Conventional understanding of the magneto-optical Kerr effect, in which changes in the magnetization of a material cause changes in the polarization of reflected light, assumes that this incident

Ultrafast optical manipulation of magnetic order

The interaction of subpicosecond laser pulses with magnetically ordered materials has developed into a fascinating research topic in modern magnetism. From the discovery of subpicosecond

Ultrafast magnetization dynamics of nanostructures

The study and control of magnetic materials using ultrashort laser pulses is of great interest both from a fundamental point of view and for potential applications in the technology of information

Perspective: Ultrafast magnetism and THz spintronics

This year the discovery of femtosecond demagnetization by laser pulses is 20 years old. For the first time this milestone work by Bigot and coworkers gave insight in a very direct way into the time

Coherent ultrafast magnetism induced by femtosecond laser pulses

The quest for ultrafast magnetic processes has triggered a new field of research—femtomagnetism: using femtosecond laser pulses to demagnetize ferromagnetic metallic thin films. Despite being the

In 1955, a phenomenological theory of ferromagnetism was well established and had been corroborated by a considerable amount of experimental data. However, there were problems in the phenomenological

Ultrafast spin dynamics in ferromagnetic nickel.

The relaxation processes of electrons and spins systems following the absorption of femtosecondoptical pulses in ferromagnetic nickel have been studied using optical and magneto-optical pump-probetechniques and the experimental results are adequately described by a model including three interacting reservoirs.
