CEA is the French Atomic and Alternative Energy Commission (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives, www.cea.fr) employing about 15000 people. It is a public body established in 1945 and active in three main fields: Energy, information and health technologies, defense and national security. In each of these fields, the CEA maintains a cross-disciplinary culture of engineers and researchers, building on the synergies between fundamental and technological research.
The group involved in the project is part of the CEA-DRF, the Fundamental Research Division located in Paris-Saclay. It is called the ‘Laboratoire Nano-magnétisme et Oxydes’ and it is involved in basic research in spintronics, nanomagnetism, oxides with widespread missions spanning all the way from new concepts to innovation through startup companies.
The specific expertise for this proposal are brought by researchers working on several fundamental research topics including (i) spin-to-charge interconversion by harnessing the spin orbit coupling interaction, (ii) antiferromagnetic spintronics and magnonics, including topological effects (iii) Non-linear optics and its interaction with ferroic orders, (iv) ultra-fast phenomena applied to multiferroics and spin currents. The main relevant contributions for TSAR include imaging (by second harmonic generation), dynamics and materials deposition, as well as coordination.
