SPIN ORBITRONICS



Research team Spinorbitronics, within the Concepts group


We have demonstrated the spin-to-charge interconversion by Rashba coupling at the interface between two light materials: iron and germanium which is compatible with today’s CMOS technology. This result constitutes the first step towards the fabrication of a spin transistor based on the spin-orbit coupling. The spin-orbit coupling, relating the electron spin and momentum, has long […]

Magnonic is an emerging research field, which aims at exploiting the transport of pure spin current in magnetic materials. The elementary excitations are the propagating spin-waves, also called magnons, which are bosonic quasiparticles. The advantages over conventional electronic devices are a significant reduction in energy consumption thanks to the absence of Joule heating, as well as new features taking […]

TOPRISE – An ANR project

The ANR project TOPRISE project aims at studying and exploiting Topological Insulator and Rashba Interface States for Spin Electronics. Most spintronics devices are today based on the manipulation of spin currents that do not carry electrical charges but can be described as equal flows of electrons with opposite spins in opposite directions. The main operations […]

ELECSPIN – An ANR project

Objectives ELECSPIN project has just been accepted at the 2016 ANR call. This collaborative research project aims to investigate the advanced concept of radically new nanoelectronics devices based on the electric-field control of spin-based phenomena and establish proof of principle demonstrations of multi-terminal energy efficient memory nano devices.  The main  objectives are: To explore, understand and optimize the physical mechanisms of […]

A CoFe based ferromagnetic alloy has been used in lateral spin valves to replace NiFe alloys, which are overwhelmingly exploited as ferromagnets electrodes in lateral spintronic devices. By using this second material, emitted signals are found to be one order of magnitude larger. In addition to using the electric charge of the electron, spintronic technologies […]

Magnetic Origami

Magnetic Origami Magnetic devices made from the same thin film and subjected to the same electric excitation switch opposite to each other due to their different shape. Mihai MIRON The magic about the art of paper folding is that from the same sheet of paper one can create so many different objects. Unfortunately, the functionality […]
