Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


With our experiment we demonstrate all-optical control of magnetization in a ferromagnet with an unprecedented sub-femtosecond time resolution. The reported results open the doors to a new generation of spintronic devices with petahertz clock-rates.
