Thank you for the clarification, yes the story correctly refers to the magnetic spin of photons, not phonons. I'll ask them if they consider the magnon moniker also appropriate, but its already night in Europe so it may take until tomorrow. Thanks again for the comment.

It should be photons not phonons; magnons are neither.

I believe you are right about phonons, but I don't see them mentioned in the story Are you referrring to the paper?

The quanta of spin waves are magnons not photons; the dispersion relations should be different.
