Sebastian T. B. Goennenwein graduated from the Technical University of Munich with a Ph.D. in physics in 2003. Following a postdoc at Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, he worked as a research group leader and as the deputy director at the Walther Meissner Institute, Bavarian Academy of Sciences, Germany. In 2016, Goennenwein was appointed a full professor at the Technical University of Dresden, Germany. His research addresses spin currents, spin dynamics, spin caloritronics, and topology-related phenomena in multifunctional magnetic heterostructures and devices.


Electrical Signal Picks Up a Magnet’s Heartbeat

Excitations in a magnet coupled to a microwave cavity can be detected electrically, providing a new way to study magnets in the quantum regime. Read More »


Spin Current in an Antiferromagnet is Coherent

Experiments show that a spin current moves as a coherent evanescent spin wave through an antiferromagnet layer sandwiched between two ferromagnets. Read More »
