A complete set of the generalized drift-diffusion equations for a coupled charge and spin dynamics in ferromagnets in the presence of extrinsic spin-orbit coupling is derived from the quantum kinetic approach, covering major transport phenomena, such as the spin and anomalous Hall effects, spin swapping, spin precession, and relaxation processes. It is argued that the […]

A team at SPINTEC in Grenoble has demonstrated thermally stable and electrically switchable Spin Transfer Torque MRAM (STT-MRAM) of diameter down to 4nm. Among the various technologies of non-volatile memories, STT-MRAM gathers a unique combination of assets: non-volatility, write speed (3-30ns), density (4Gbit demonstrated by Hynix/Toshiba), low consumption (a few tens of fJ/write), and very […]

MATEMAC3D – An ANR project

Overview The objective of the project is to combine all key ingredients for modern Spintronics and SpinOrbitronics modeling within a novel and original non-commercial multi-physics software. These key ingredients are the appropriate spin transport equations that are easy-implementable in a numerical solver, the simultaneous resolution of the spin-dependent transport and magnetization dynamics, and finally the […]
