Title              :

Chiral magnetism, skyrmions and nanoscale superparamagetism in oxide interfaces

Speaker         : Dr. Sumilan Banerjee, Weizmann Institute of Science,Israel
Date                : December 17, 2015
Time               : 4:00 PM
Venue            : LH-II (Auditorium), SINP, Kolkata
Abstract        :

Atomically sharp oxide heterostructures exhibit a range of novel phenomena that do not occur in the parent bulk compounds. One of the prominent examples is the appearance of magnetism at the interface between the band insulators LaAlO3 (LAO) and SrTiO3 (STO). In the first part of my talk, I will discuss the possibility of realizing chiral magnetism and novel magnetic states, namely spirals and skyrmions, in oxide interfaces [1,2,3]. In the second part of my talk, I will report a new emergent phenomenon at another interface, LaMnO3/SrTiO3 (LMO/STO), in which an antiferromagnetic insulator abruptly transforms as a function of LMO thickness into a magnetic state exhibiting unusual nanoscale uperparamagnetic dynamics [4]. I will discuss a theoretical model to understand this phenomenon. [1] S. Banerjee, O. Erten and M. Randeria, Nature Physics 9, 626 (2013). [2] S. Banerjee, J. Rowland, O. Erten and M. Randeria, Phys.
