Spin Dynamics
Welcome to the spintronics group at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Manitoba, Canada.
We conduct experiments investigating magnetism, spintronics, and metamaterials. Our research focus is on the interplay between spin, charge, and photon in low-dimensional systems.

    Congratulations to Ying for receiving The University of Manitoba Distingushed Dissertation Awards. The University of Manitoba Distingushed Dissertation Awards are given out annually to recognize the achievements of PhD graduates who submitted groundbreaking theses in the previous academic year. Each year, one award is offered in each of the following categories: applied sciences, health sciences, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Ying is also featured by the Asian Heritage Month at the Faculty of Science.
