“Spin pumping and torque statistics in the quantum noise limit”

Abstract:
We analyze the statistics of charge and energy currents and spin torque in a metallic nanomagnet coupled to a large magnetic metal via a tunnel contact. We derive a Keldysh action for the tunnel barrier, describing the stochastic currents in the presence of a magnetization precessing with the rate ?. In con [more]

Pisa - 07.06.2017 - Wave and light, how the new Terahertz laser works.
An innovative laser, capable of emitting a very focused beam has been obtained thanks to the double nature of the Terahertz waves. A group of scientists from Istituto Nanoscienze Cnr, and from University of Pisa, along with Scuola normale superiore (Sns) and University of Cambridge. Terahertz waves can easily penetrate plastic, textiles and other materials and are at the forefront in radiology applied to the detection of hidden weapons or bio-agents.

All-optical control of the quantum flow of a polariton condensate Although photons in vacuum are massless particles that do not appreciably interact with each other, significant interactions appear in suitable nonlinear media, leading to hydrodynamic behaviours typical of quantum fluids.
