Research for a Novel Physical Reservoir

– Nonlinear Magnons for Reservoir Computing in Reciprocal Space –
is a collaborative research project which is funded by the European Union and brings together seven partners from four European countries to explore the potential of magnetic excitations and spintronic devices for a novel physical reservoir.

NIMFEIA in numbers

7 partners
4 European countries
3 421 000 € contribution by the European Union
4 years project run time (October 2022 ➞ September 2026)

Our vision

NIMFEIA’s vision is to provide a novel hardware solution for physical reservoir computing using nanoscale magnetic elements combined with advanced spintronics technologies.

We base our approach on the disruptive idea of computing in reciprocal space, utilizing nonlinear interactions of quantized magnetic excitations.

These nonlinear interactions can be efficiently harnessed for reservoir computing tasks like pattern recognition and time series prediction with minimal pre-processing of input data.

By making use of the nonlinear interactions of different quantized magnetic excitations in individual spatially confined devices, such as a single magnetic disc, computing is done in reciprocal space without the need to transport information data in real space.
