Title: "Exceptionally good" grant GAUK at DCMP
Number: 32/18
Status: Closing date exceeded
Location: DCMP

Student grant GAUK (Grant agency of the Charles University) "Relativistic theory of spin-dependent transport in spintronic materials" that was solved at the DCMP from 2015 to 2017 by David Wagenknecht, Libor Šmejkal, and Jakub Šebesta was evaluated as exceptionally good.
All of the scientific aims were fulfilled beyond their original objectives; a unified theory of magnetotransport phenomena both in ferromagnets and antiferromagnets was developed, including a description of finite temperatures in ab initio calculations, which was used to investigate spintronic materials and phenomena.
The project had a total budget over 700 thousand CZK, nine papers were published and the students presented their results on more than twenty conferences, including four invited talks.
