Efficient spin voltage/current generation in a ferromagnet/semiconductor lateral spin-valve

Project: Other projectResearch collaboration

Project Details


The goal of this project is to fabricate spintronic devices based on either a pure spin current or a pure spin voltage, which are expected to offer fundamental functions for next-generation nanoelectronic device applications.
This project will be carried out under the close collaboration with Profs. Yuzo Ohno and Hideo Ohno at the Laboratory for Electronic Intelligent Systems, Research Institute of Electrical Communications, Tohoku University. A successful PhD candidate will spend approximately 3 months in Tohoku University to fabricate spintronic nanodevices with using state-of-the-art nano-fabrication facilities.

The interfacial properties as well as transport properties will be characterised by ultra high resolution (1Å) Field Emission Transmission Electron Microscope and low-temperature measurement set-up in collaboration with Prof. Kevin O'Grady in Physics.
