SPIN ORBITRONICS

Overview

From new concepts to devices : we are 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.

Research directions

Spin Orbit Torques

We aim at understanding and mastering spin orbit torques for efficient and deterministic magnetization switching with in plane currents.

3-Terminal MRAM

We develop electrically addressable non-volatile memories combining high speed and infinite endurance.
