Congratulations to Mr. Di Kai for receiving the 2015 Top Graduate Researcher Award, Faculty of Science. He is a PhD student in the Laser Brillouin Spectroscopy Group. Recently, the Group has made the first direct observation of the interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction in magnetic ultrathin films. The findings could be of use in spin-wave-based computing and the field of spintronics.
