SPINTEC is opening a two years post-doctoral position on modelling of all optical switching using light carrying orbital momentum The manipulation of magnetization by ps or fs light pulses has become a very exciting topic nowadays opening routes towards ultrafast magnetization control. To date, most of the light-spin interaction studies made use of spin angular […]

Context. Spintronics has become a mature technology for applications, such as magnetic field sensing and solid-state memories. However, existing concepts are almost exclusively based on planar processes such as thin film deposition and patterning. Extending spintronics to 3D devices would provide new integrated functionalities such as three-dimensional magnetic field sensors, and also open prospects for […]

Magnetic Random Access Memory recently started to be commercialized by all main microelectronics factories. In MRAM, the information is coded via parallel or antiparallel magnetic configurations to represent ones and zeroes. The technology is intrinsically nonvolatile, meaning it can keep information without being electrically powered. However, nonvolatility often comes with a trade-off between the information […]

We present a new type of biocompatible surface-functionalized magnetic microparticles for cancer cells destruction. The magnetite particles, covered with polyethylene glycol molecules, are shown to favor cell-death via apoptosis when set into vibrations by alternating magnetic field.   A team from SPINTEC, in collaboration with researchers from SyMMES, has recently developed a new type of […]

STOCHNET – An ANR project

STOCHNET stands for Hybrid Stochastic Tunnel Junction Circuits for Optimization and Inference. The motivation behind StochNet is to explore — through experimental demonstrations with hybrid CMOS stochastic tunnel junction circuits and simulations of theoretical architectures — the technological feasibility of recently explored brain inspired computing frameworks that point towards neural stochasticity as being fundamental to […]

In the frame of the joint US-French NSF-ANR project StochNet, Spintec laboratory is opening a postdoctoral researcher position. The candidate will work on stochastic magnetic tunnel junctions grown and fabricated at Spintec, and will use them to explore brain-inspired schemes promising for building energy-efficient computing hardware. The project will have a strong interdisciplinary aspect (Spintronic, […]

Neuromorphic computing is a bio-inspired technology which aims at mimicking the brain working principles. It can be used for fast and energy-efficient applications through the implementation of networks of artificial neurons and synapses. Artificial synapses are implemented as electronic components called memristors. These are non-volatile memory devices whose resistance can take several intermediate values between […]

Using the spin Seebeck effect (SSE), we study the short-range propagation distance of thermally-induced spin currents inside insulator magnetic thin film. We find the spin diffusion length of thermal magnons (magnons carrying quanta of energy, kBT) is is in submicron range.   The vision of spintronics is to use the spin of an electron rather […]
