Lateral spin transport (diffusive spin current)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The transport properties of the diffusive pure spin current induced in the metallic nanostructures are discussed. The author introduces the methods for the efficient generation, manipulation, and detection of the pure spin current in laterally configured ferromagnetic/nonmagnetic metal hybrid structures. The experimental demonstration of the magnetization switching using the pure spin current is also introduced.
