COMRAD – An H2020 ITN project


COMRAD is an H2020 ITN projet (2020-2024). It will explore novel routes for the fastest possible and least dissipative magnetic switching in random access devices by bringing together the two disciplines of ultrafast magnetism and spin-orbitronics, creating sub-100 ps stimuli in spin-orbitronics and pushing the latter into a regime beyond the limitations of equilibrium thermodynamics.
The ambition of COMRAD is to train PhDs in such a way that they gain a broad understanding of the challenges in the entire process of emergence and development of opto-magnetic data storage, from fundamental research to device and failure analysis. This is a new and disruptive technology with the potential to revolutionize information storage and manipulation. Working on the ambitious goals in the consortium of academic and multiscale industrial partners, the trained PhDs will develop unique cross-disciplinary skills in applying advanced experimental and computational techniques, state-of-the-art device engineering and analysis. Being a new generation of scientists with an affinity to commercial enterprises and ambassadors of science in commerce, COMRAD PhDs will be able to strengthen European innovation capacity feeling the frighteningly increasing gap between fundamental science and commercial applications.
