To obtain a detailed understanding of the origin of the acting spin orbit fields – i.e. the spin Hall effect vs. the inverse spin galvanic effect – one needs to be able to unambiguously separate field-like and damping like torques. We use a ferromagnet/semiconductor model system to determine spin orbit fields using optical and electrical detection techniques. In this talk I will review the mechanisms we have identified to be responsible for exciting magnetization dynamics in this model system and show how the measurement of the time resolved magnetization trajectory may further provide information concerning the underlying microscopic mechanisms.      Watch the recorded webinar here     SUBSCRIBE to our email list here.   If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please contact Jessi Middleton at middleton.85@osu.edu.
