the Project is implemented in the framework of megagrant under the guidance of Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor of Moscow state University. M. V. Lomonosov Vladimir Belotelov. About it reports a press-service of KFU.

Developmental science poses new challenges and problems, in particular, accelerate data processing, enhance the density of recording and reading of information, – said the Professor of the Moscow state University. M. V. Lomonosov Vladimir Belotelov. – Every day you have to handle huge data flows, and current technologies based on electronics, that we do not. It is necessary to seek new approaches, in particular, with the help of such physical areas as Photonics and spintronics. In Photonics for transmission and processing of information using photons, and spintronics to work with the data use back. In my opinion, it is very important to study the interaction of photons with the spins.

In the Crimean Federal University creates high-quality magnetic materials with ordered spins, and Moscow exploring the interaction of light with magnetic structures.

– we had the idea to unite these aspects and to open a laboratory in which to create and explore these materials to a new level, – said Vladimir Belotelov. For this research, the University purchases new equipment, which will allow to obtain magnetic materials with an even higher quality and desired properties. Now we grow and synthesize single-crystal thin films of ferrites-garnets, on the basis of which we plan to create different nanostructures, in which the efficiency of interaction between light and spins much higher than for homogeneous films.

In August, the University will receive femtosecond laser – one of the main instruments for research, allowing to study the effects of light on magnetization of new materials.

– If you learn how to control magnetization using light, opens great opportunities for creation of new touch devices, processing devices and recording information, – said the scientist.

In 2019 Crimean Federal University for the first time became the winner of competition of the Ministry of science and higher education of the Russian Federation for mega-grants. Implementation of two research projects in material science and agronomy has been allocated 180 million rubles.
