Heat reveals hidden magnetic secrets

Our recent research article on “Distinguishing antiferromagnetic spin sub lattices via the spin Seebeck effect” was featured by Physical Review B as an “Editor’s Suggestion”. ┬áThis article discusses how electric voltages generated by temperature gradients across an antiferromagnetic Cr2O3 film enable to get detailed insights into the spin structure of this film. ┬áThis provides a new, easy-to-implement method for resolving changes of the magnetic structures of antiferromagnets.
