Motivated by the pioneering studies of Eremenko of magneto-optical effects in antiferromagnetic crystals, we describe an expansion of the horizons of classical magnetism to include study of Earth's magnetic field and natural environments. We also review briefly examples of exotic magnetism not directly associated with alignment of quantum spins in traditional ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic crystalline structures. While many such cases have long been known, recent breakthroughs are associated with so-called optical magnetism that became a reality due to development of the field of metamaterials.

    The quantum spin Hall (QSH) state is a state of matter characterized by a non-trivial topology of its band structure, and associated conducting edge channels. The QSH state was predicted and experimentally demonstrated to be realized in HgTe quantum wells. The existence of the edge channels has...

    In this paper, we propose and analyze an efficient high-dimensional quantum state transfer (QST) scheme through an XXZ-Heisenberg spin chain in an inhomogeneous magnetic field. By the use of a combination of coherent quantum coupling and free spin wave approximation, pure unitary evolution...

    Magnetic Weyl semimetals (WSMs) bearing long-time seeking are still very rare. We have identified herein that EuCd2Sb2, a semimetal belonging to the type IV magnetic space group, hosts a magnetic exchange induced Weyl state via performing high magnetic field magnetotransport measurements and ab...

    The influence of a magnetic defect on the field distribution and magneto-optical properties of a one-dimensional photonic crystal has been investigated. It has been shown that the maximum localization of the wave field in the defect layer is achieved in an asymmetric photonic crystal structure....
