Research in theoretical condensed matter physics in the area of magnetism, spin-polarized currents, magnetization dynamics and spin transport. Our current focus is on magnetic dynamics induced by the spin-transfer torque. On the side of fundamental physics this work is aimed at finding solutions of the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation in the presence of spin currents and obtaining a physical understanding of the new current-induced excitations. On the applied side, our results are helping to engineer novel devices for computer memory hardware.
