Beyond traditional charged-based devices, logic operations can also be performed utilizing the principles of spintronics in terms of magnetic logic gates. Connecting these magnetic logic gates to a circuit is, however, demanding. In contrast to conventional electronics, where only electron charge is used, the electron spins interact with each other and are temperature-sensitive. This alternating effect leads to the loss of information in the circuit. Therefore, the modeling of magnetic logic gate circuits requires a proper understanding of spin torques and thermal effects. Leveraging the interaction of these effects allows for the creation of energy efficient devices.

During my master thesis I study the behavior of magnetic-logic gate circuits under the influence of thermal noise. Our goal is to find magnetic logic gates that are reliable against temperature fluctuations and spin interactions.
