Demagnetization by rapid spin transport

The fact that an ultrashort laser pulse is capable of demagnetizing a ferromagnetic layer in a jiffy has been well-known since approximately 1996. What we don't yet understand, however, is how exactly this demagnetization ...

A new probe for spintronics

The spin Hall effect (SHE) enables us to create spin current in  non-magnetic materials without using ferromagnetic materials. It is a crucial element in the central idea behind spintronics, that of manipulating ...
