Their demagnetization must involve excitation of magnons, driven either through exchange coupling between the 5d6s-itinerant and 4f-localized electrons or by coupling of 4f spins to lattice excitations. Here, we disentangle the ultrafast dynamics of 5d6s and 4f magnetic moments in terbium metal by time-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. We show that the demagnetization time of the Tb 4f magnetic moments of 400 fs is set by 4f spin-lattice coupling. This is experimentally evidenced by a comparison to ferromagnetic gadolinium and supported by orbital-resolved spin dynamics simulations. Our findings establish coupling of the 4f spins to the lattice via the orbital momentum as an essential mechanism driving magnetization dynamics via ultrafast magnon generation in technically relevant materials with strong magnetic anisotropy.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Carva, Karel</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>The role of ultrafast magnon generation in the magnetization dynamics of rare-earth metals</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Legut, Dominik</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2020-09</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Döbrich, Kristian</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/51167/1/Frietsch_2-1ochnnzd15dwh0.pdf"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/51167/1/Frietsch_2-1ochnnzd15dwh0.pdf"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-02T09:04:21Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Teichmann, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bowlan, John</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/51167"/> <dc:creator>Weinelt, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Weinelt, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Döbrich, Kristian</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-02T09:04:21Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Donges, Andreas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Donges, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Teichmann, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Frietsch, Björn</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Carley, Robert</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bowlan, John</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Carley, Robert</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
