Research

Theoretical studies are performed on metallic ferromagnets such as iron, nickel, cobalt and their alloys and glasses.

Conduction electrons interact with spin waves, domain walls, film interfaces and other disturbances of the magnetic spin system through the s-d exchange energy and through hydromagnetic forces. The conduction electrons also undergo anisotropic scattering by magnetized chemical impurities through the spin-orbit energy.
