From Magnons to Solitons: Spin Dynamics

Abstract

There exist striking similarities between the elementary excitations of a ferromagnet and those in an elastic solid. In the latter, we know that an atom displaced from equilibrium position will oscillate with the motion and frequencies of the normal modes of the crystal. The effect of quantum mechanics on this motion is to quantize the amplitudes of the individual normal modes, into units known as phonons. The analogous normal modes in the magnetic system are the spin waves; when the quantum mechanical nature of spins is taken into account, these also are quantized, with the basic unit being the magnon.
