spatially resolved Brillouin spectroscopy station

Main steps of the experiment setup

September 2020

Installation of the double interferometer spectrometer by the company The Table Stable

February 2021

Installation of the electromagnet and optics to perform the Brillouin spectroscopy experiments of spin waves resolved in wave vector.

March – July 2021

Handling of the experiment with a M2 trainee, Sali Salama, currently in PhD thesis (SPiCY project LABEX NanoSaclay) since December 2021 in co-supervision between the Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales (M. Anane) and the C2N lab (J.-P. Adam)

September 2021

Installation of the optics and the sample environment for the Brillouin microscopy experiments of spatially, time and phase resolved spin waves.

Experimental setup of spectroscopy and Brillouin microscopy
Experimental setup of spectroscopy and Brillouin microscopy finalized in September 2021 used in microscopy mode (first measurement campaign in October 2021).

Main measurements made

March – July 2021

first Brillouin spectroscopy campaign on BiYIG samples (Sali Salama’s M2 internship)

October 2021 – February 2022

first Brillouin microscopy campaign on a sample composed of a CoFeB/Ru/CoFeB stack, for the ANR MAXSAW contract between C2N and SPEC of Paris-Saclay University, INSP of Sorbonne University and FEMTO-ST of Besançon University.
