From new concepts to devices : exploring new concepts in spintronics based on spin dependent transport with various systems : structure inversion asymmetry (spin orbit torques, Rashba effect, Spin Hall Effect, Topological Insulators), and alternative geometries in order to develop innovative architectures of devices.
Spin Orbit Torques
To understand and master spin orbit torques for efficient and deterministic magnetization switching with in plane currents.
Spin to charge inter-conversion
To study different mechanisms to inter-convert spin and charge currents using the spin orbit interaction: Spin Hall effect, Rashba effect at interfaces and surfaces of Topological insulators.
Developing an electrically addressable non-volatile memory combining high speed and infinite endurance.
Novel devices and concepts
To study spin dependent transport and pure spin current physics in lateral spin valves as well as novel ways to tailor the magnetic states of nanomagnets, like magnetic origamis.

- Giant and tunable spin-charge conversion at oxide interfaces (April 14th, 2017)
At the interface between the strontium titanate and the lanthanide aluminate forms a 2 dimensional electron system. By using a dynamical spin injection technique, we were able to demonstrate a record conversion yield between spin ...
- Creation of unidirectional spin-wave emitters by utilizing interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (April 13th, 2017)
We have created an analytical model of spin waves in microscopic spin-wave waveguides in the presence of interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. By comparing to micromagnetic simulations, we have demonstrated that spatially periodic excitation sources can be ...
- Evidence for spin-to-charge conversion by Rashba coupling in metallic states at the Fe/Ge(111) interface (January 09th, 2017)
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 ...
