Workshop on Optomagnonics in Erlangen, June 26-28 2017


Optomagnonics is a newly developing topic where one studies the coupling of light to magnon excitations in solids. This workshop will gather groups working in this area and related areas, such as spin-light coupling in atomic clouds, spintronics, and magnonics in general.
