Dr. Tadas Balciunas was awarded Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship “FASTMAGNETS” (Ultrafast Demagnetization Dynamics Using Novel Table-top X-ray Source)

The aim of this Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) project is to study magnetization dynamics in ferromagnetic materials on the unprecedented temporal resolution using novel state-of-the soft X-Ray source based on high order harmonic generation (HHG). One of the most intriguing questions in the field of ultrafast magnetism is what is the fundamental speed limit for demagnetization (“erasing”) or magnetization switching (“writing”) and what are the mechanisms driving the dynamics.
