Dr. Venkataiah Gorige, Assistant Professor, School of Physics, University of Hyderabad (UoH) has been awarded an Indo-Japan bilateral collaborative research project entitled “Interfacial multiferroic magnons: understanding of cross-correlation towards magnonic logic circuit applications”. The project has been jointly approved by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), Japan. The project has been approved for the areas of Fundamental Science: Physical and Chemical Systems based on the scientific strength, technical aspects, project objectives and national priorities of both the countries.

The main objective of the project is to generate the electric field induced spin waves excitation, propagation, and detection in ferromagnetic/ferroelectric heterostructured multiferroics for possible low-power consumption spintronic and magnonic applications.

While Dr. Gorige would be the Principal Investigator at the UoH, Prof. Taniyama Tomoyasu would be the Principal Investigator at the Department of Physics, Nagoya University, Japan for this project. UoH group members would visit the Nagoya University and the Japanese group would visit the UoH for a couple of times for exchanging ideas and sharing key experimental facilities to implement the proposal towards collaboration for a period of two years with effect from the academic year 2019.
