Spin Hall effect devices

Spin Hall effect devices The spin Hall effect is a relativistic spin–orbit coupling phenomenon, which can be used to electrically generate or detect spin currents in non-magnetic systems. This Review discusses the experiments that have established the basic physical understanding of the effect, and the role that several of the spin Hall devices have had in the demonstration of spintronic functionalities and physical phenomena. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Materials Springer Journals

Abstract

The spin Hall effect is a relativistic spin–orbit coupling phenomenon, which can be used to electrically generate or detect spin currents in non-magnetic systems. This Review discusses the experiments that have established the basic physical understanding of the effect, and the role that several of the spin Hall devices have had in the demonstration of spintronic functionalities and physical phenomena.
