Welcome to MagIC+

Magnetism, Interactions and Complexity: innovative ideas on spin wave dynamics and transport properties in low-dimensional materials

satellite workshop to The European Conference Physics of Magnetism 2023

To explore and fully exploit opportunities emerging from spintronics and magnonics.

July 24 - 28, 2023

Będlewo (near Poznań), Poland.

     MagIC+ is the satellite workshop to “The European Conference Physics of Magnetism 2023 (PM’23)" the conference organized jointly by Faculty of Physics in Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland and Institute of Molecular Physics Polish Academy of Science in Poznań.

     The first MagIC Workshop was held in Trzebaw in 2017 and focused on magnonics. The second in 2021, due to Covid's limitations, was only online, and focused on the multifunctional aspects of spin-wave dynamics and transport properties in low-dimensional quantum materials.

     In 2023 the MagIC + workshop will held in Będlewo, Poland, in a beautiful palace built in neo-Gothic style: https://www.palacbedlewo.pl/en/. Its topics will focus on innovative ideas in the fields of spintronics, magnonics and materials science, with particular emphasis on 2D materials, nanoscale magnetization textures, topological phases and more. The Workshop aims to stimulate discussions between beginners and experienced scientists https://www.palacbedlewo.pl/en/working in the field of magnonics and spintronics and materials science to look for new effects and the possibility of their practical use. The Workshop offers an excellent opportunity to share the latest results, exchange opinions, and discuss emergent and future directions related to spin-waves and magnetic solitons, spin-dependent transport, and spintronics devices based on new materials. The lectures will be delivered by world-leading experts, broadly united under the following topics:

  • Magnonics and Spintronics,
  • 2D solitons and their dynamics,
  • 3D magnetic structures and 3D magnonics,
  • Nonlinear dynamics,
  • Antiferromagnetic spintronics,
  • Van-der-Waals heterostructures and twisted magnets,
  • Valleytronics and spin-orbitronics,
  • Topological insulators and topological properties (quantum and classical),
  • Quantum transport (linear and nonlinear response).

   All participants are very welcome to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations, to enable them to share their recent research results while also fuelling opportunity for fruitful discussions.

   Conference cost: 2400 PLN (around 500 EUR) covering registration fee, conference materials, full board and accommodation.

Please contact the organizers in advance if the invitation letter for the visa application is required.

Partnership Conferences

Physics of Magnetism 2023

  • The European Conference Physics of Magnetism,
    Poznań, Poland, 26th to June 30rd, 2023

Sol-SkyMag 2023

  • San Sebastian, Spain, 19th to June 23rd, 2023


  • NCN is a government agency, supervised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, set up in 2011 to support basic research in Poland.

The Workshop is supported by three projects:

NCN GRIEG: Spin and charge transport in low-dimensional novel quantum materials (2Dtronics)

(No. 2019/34/H/ST3/00515), coordinated by prof. Anna Dyrdał (AMU) in collaboration with Dr Alireza Qaiumzadeh (QuSpin/NTNU, Norway)

The project focuses on such subfields of spintronics as spin-orbitronics, valleytronics, magnonics, and antiferromagnetic spintronics, where the symmetries and topological properties of the systems play an essential role. We wish to focus on novel materials that may serve as a platform for phenomena where the topological nature of quasiparticle states is crucial and allows for various spin-to-charge interconversion phenomena. We aim to combine the spin and valley degrees of freedom with the symmetries and topological properties of the system to describe and propose phenomena that enable us to work out new protocols for electronic and logic devices. Additionally, we want to study the presence of some emergent phenomena in low dimensional quantum magnetic systems, like magnon BEC and spin superfluidity, important from both academic and application points of view.

NCN POLS: Statics and dynamics of 3d magnetization textures (3DMATEX)

(No. 2020/37/K/ST3/02450), coordinated by prof. Olena Tartakivska (AMU and IMAG, Kyiv, Ukraine) in collaboration with prof. Konstantin Guslienko (UPV/EHU, San Sebastian, Spain).

The solitons and third dimension are of special interest in magnetic media, because employment of 3D magnetic solitons like hopfions, domain walls and Bloch points can open a route to create novel magnetic storage devices with a high density of information recording, new spintronic devices, and offer new breakthrough ideas in magnonics. The team plan to perform a comprehensive investigation of 3D magnetic solitons, including the necessary conditions for their formation and stability. The aim of our research is also to study the dynamics of 3D magnetic solitons and their interaction with elementary excitations of the magnetic medium, such as magnons and electrons.

NCN SHENG: Spin waves in magnetic skyrmion crystals (SPINSKY)

(NoUMO-2018/30/Q/ST3/00416), coordinated by prof. Maciej Krawczyk (AMU) jointly with prof. Yan Zhou (The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, China).

The research aims to contribute to the two important application-related topics of modern magnetism: efficient generation of propagating short wavelength spin waves, and synchronization of the magnetization oscillations in nano-dots. Both objectives are critical for further development of the magnonics, spintronics fields of research, and SW-based devices. We propose to employ non-collinear topologically protected stable magnetic states coupled to the ferromagnetic film with the imprinted magnetization texture. Based on the skyrmion–spin wave interaction we will investigate artificial skyrmionic crystals to control spin-wave dynamic and their static properties, and to construct prototypes of magnonic logic devices.

NCN OPUS 20:Magnetic domains without domain walls in magnetically patterned rare-earth-transition metal ferrimagnetic films (TWIST)

No. 2020/39/B/ST5/01915, coordinated by prof. Piotr Kuświk (IMP PAS)

Research on ferrimagnetic materials is experiencing a renewed interest for a wide range of applications such as for all-optical switching, spintronics applications, and fast domain wall propagation. We have recently shown that it is possible to stabilize magnetic domains without domain walls (DWs) in a ferrimagnetic Tb/Co multilayer system patterned by ion bombardment. In this project, we will expand the spectrum of investigated systems as well as other patterning methods. Comparative analysis of the magnetization reversal processes for structures obtained by different patterning methods will help to understand the conditions necessary to obtain this unique magnetic spin texture. We believe that project results may prompt a paradigm shift in the current understanding of the relationship between domains and DWs. They will also have profound technological consequences, because in our proposed design there is no competition between the exchange, anisotropy, and stray field energies, which makes domains without DWs to be very stable and it might be possible to reduce domain sizes well below the limits reachable with ferromagnets.
