2D AND SEMICONDUCTOR SPINTRONICS




Topological insulators (TI) represent a new class of insulating materials hosting metallic surface states. Moreover, those surface states exhibit a Dirac cone energy dispersion where the strong spin-orbit coupling leads to a helical spin texture at the Fermi level. This property can be exploited to detect spin currents in conventional semiconductors like silicon or germanium. […]

Relating magnetotransport properties to specific spin textures at surfaces or interfaces is an intense field of research nowadays. Here, we investigate the variation of the electrical resistance of Ge(111) under the application of an external magnetic field. We find a magnetoresistance term that is linear in current density j and magnetic field B, reaching 0.5 […]

The Hall effect can be extended by inducing a temperature gradient in lieu of electric field that is known as the Nernst effect. After the discovery of the spin Nernst effect, the collection would not be complete without mentioning the valley degree of freedom benchmarked by the observation of the valley Hall effect in transition […]

Transition metal dichalcogenides (MoS2, WSe2, etc.) and topological insulators (Bi2Se3, Bi2Te3) are graphene siblings holding great promise for semiconductor spintronics. They possess an intense spin-orbit interaction that couples the electron momentum and spin. This coupling can be used to manipulate spins with electric fields, to convert charge currents into spin currents, and gives rise to […]

Nanopoly — A FET-OPEN project

NANOPOLY proposes a ground-breaking yet cost effective method to extend our control over impedance and parasitic phenomena in monolithic circuit components by independently tuning electric permittivity and magnetic permeability of the integrated layers to values far beyond what nature can provide. This approach will re-define all components used in existing analogue circuit design regardless of […]

MAGICVALLEY – An ANR project

MAGICVALLEY stands for MAGnetism InduCed VALLEY polarization in large scale 2D materials (2018-2022). Objectives In the monolayer limit, two dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (2H-MX2, with M=Mo, W and X=S, Se) are semiconductors with a sizeable (1-2 eV) and direct electronic bandgap as well as (degenerate) valleys at the K+/K- corners of the Brillouin zone.
