Abstract

Magnonic crystals are periodically micro- or nanostructured metamaterials in order to manipulate and control the propagation of spin waves. They have attracted great interest from the fundamental physics point of view at the same time that are great promising of technological application at the area of magnonics. The purpose of this project is investigate the performance of systems known as artificial spin ice as magnonic crystals. These systems are formed by nanomagnets (ferromagnets), called islands, whose periodic lattice geometry prevents that each interacting pair minimize its energy simultaneously, an effect called geometric frustration. They have been extensively studied at the past decade due to the rich phenomenology originated by this frustration, such as ground state highly degenerate, magnetic monopoles emergence and 1D spin avalanches in a 2D system. All these phenomena are quasi-static, making this project one of the pioneers upon the study of dynamical excitations in artificial spin ice. However, the understanding of its dynamic is conditioned to the comprehension of its static behavior and, therefore, both regimes will be addressed in the project, but having the first at focus. Another innovative initiative launched is the study of magnonic crystals formed not only by ferromagnets but also by antiferromagnets, something never explored until now. In this sense, the proposal is to take the artificial spin ice design but fabricate islands as being bilayers, one ferro- and the other antiferromagnetic coupled via exchange bias. (AU)
