Dr. Thomas Brächer
Dr Thomas Brächer received his PhD in Physics with honours in March 2015 at the TU Kaiserslautern in Germany. After a Postdoc at SPINTEC in Grenoble, he has returned as a principal investigator in the research group of Jun. Prof. Dr Andrii Chumak and Prof. Dr Burkard Hillebrands at TU Kaiserslautern.
He is an expert on linear and non-linear spin-wave dynamics, researching the excitation, manipulation and detection of magnons, the quanta of spin-wave excitation in a magnetic solid. These waves hold large potential for the realization of miniaturized wave-based logic devices on a chip. Thomas Brächer research is focused on the experimental realization of proof-of-concept magnonic devices as well as the constant lookout for new phenomena to boost the efficiency of spin-wave sources and detectors. His research experience on novel spintronic memory concepts makes him particularly target the interface between magnonics and (conventional) spintronics.
