Aalto-korkeakoulusäätiö, operating as Aalto University, is a Finnish multidisciplinary university in the fields of science and technology, economics, architecture, and art and design. Aalto University employs ~370 professors and has a student body of 20 000, 70 % of which are students in science and technology. Aalto University was founded in 2010 by merging three Finnish universities: The Helsinki School of Economics, The University of Art and Design Helsinki, and Helsinki University of Technology. The three schools were all leading and renowned institutions in their respective fields and in their own right. The School of Science (SCI) combines cutting-edge research with committed educationand learning together. The site of research and training is the Department of Applied Physics, which is part of SCI at Aalto University. It is represented in this proposal by Prof. Sebastiaan van Dijken, who heads the Nanomagnetism and Spintronics (NanoSpin) group (https://www.aalto.fi/department-of-applied-physics/nanomagnetism-and-spintronicsnanospin). Research in the NanoSpin group focuses on experimental investigations of electric-field controlled magnetism and magnonics.
