Atomistic Spin Simulations in your Browser

Intuitive User Interface and powerful real-time Visualisation
Easy to Learn

Atomistic spin dynamics is an important area of physics, where magnetism and spin interactions in solid state systems are simulated on an atomistic scale.

The focus of this website is to simplify the learning process for people being introduced to interacting spins and to make spin dynamics easy to grasp and use.

Some more text...

The WebApp is based on the open source spin simulation framework Spirit. See the Tutorial section for an introduction to the controls.

  • Simulate physical processes in real-time, get an understanding of different spin interactions and the magnetic configurations they induce. See the influence of temperature and spin-polarised currents on localised states.

  • This feature is not yet available in the browser version...
    Calculate transitions paths between states.

  • The web interface provides a peek at what a modern spin simulation code can do.

  • Change interaction constants and system parameters on the fly to see how they interact and how results may differ depending on your system.
