LASSP & AEP Seminar by Eunice Bae (Cornell)
Title: Exciton-Coupled Coherent Magnons and What’s Next?
Abstract: While magnons and excitons differ significantly in their energy scales, up to four orders of magnitude, their coupling can lead to efficient optical access to spin information. In this talk, I will discuss how a two-dimensional (2D) magnetic semiconductor, CrSBr, can possess tightly bound excitons with large oscillator strength and long-lived coherent magnons due to the presence of bandgap and spatial confinement. I will talk about optical excitation  and detection  of exciton-coupled magnon dynamics using time- and spatially resolved optical spectroscopy and the implications of magnetoelectronic and magnetoelastic coupling in quantum hybrids, magnonics, and optoelectronics. Lastly, I will discuss my research interests and future projects that I will work on as an assistant professor in the Chemistry department at Cornell.
