Dr. Claudia Mewes received NSF Career Award

This Faculty Early CAREER award funds theoretical research to investigate the static and dynamic magnetization properties in spintransport electronic (short: spintronic) devices. Spintronics aims to use the electron spin in addition to its electric charge to develop highly functional and energy efficient devices. In this context a better fundamental understanding of the involved magnetic properties within the confined device setting is of paramount importance for a widespread adoption of spintronic technologies. Especially the complicated interplay of different material parameters and their modifications are essential for the performance of new spintronic devices, including their scalability and efficiency.
