Antiferromagnets are becoming more popular for spintronic applications due to their faster dynamics compared to ferromagnets. They are also more stable against perturbations as a result of their zero net magnetization. However, this stability constrains the options to manipulate them. Domain walls are metastable states which can be used as a spintronic application. A mechanism to periodically shed domain walls in nanowires by electrical currents has already been proposed for ferromagnets.

My research is focused on the domain wall shedding in nanowires in antiferromagnets.
