Breakdown of the drift-diffusion model for transverse spin transport in a disordered Pt film

October 25, 2023
Kirill Belashchenko, Giovanni G. Baez Flores, Wuzhang Fang, Alexei Kovalev, Mark van Schilfgaarde, Mark Stiles, Paul M. Haney
Spin accumulation and spin current profiles are calculated for a disordered Pt film subjected to an in-plane electric current within the nonequilibrium Green function approach. In the bulklike region of the sample, this approach captures intrinsic spin

A quantum ruler for orbital magnetism in moire quantum matter

October 5, 2023
Marlou Slot, Yulia Maximenko, Paul M. Haney, Sungmin Kim, Daniel Walkup, Evgheni Strelcov, En-Min Shih, Dilek Yildiz, Steven R. Blankenship, Kenji Watanabe, Takashi Taniguchi, Yafis Barlas, Nikolai Zhitenev, Fereshte Ghahari Kermani, Joseph A. Stroscio
Topological properties that underlie the rich emergent phases of moiré quantum matter (MQM) result from the eigenstate geometry of the moiré Hamiltonian. The eigenstate geometry involves the Berry curvature and the less known quantum metric. Most studies

Large Exotic Spin Torques in Antiferromagnetic Iron Rhodium

August 29, 2022
Jonathan Gibbons, Takaaki Dohi, Vivek Amin, Fei Xue, Haowen Ren, Hanu Arava, Hilal Saglam, Yuzi Liu, John Pearson, Nadya Mason, Amanda Petford-Long, Paul M. Haney, Soho Shim, Jun-wen Xu, Mark Stiles, Eric Fullerton, Andrew Kent, Shunsuke Fukami, Axel Hoffmann
Spin torque is a promising tool for driving magnetization dynamics for novel computing techniques. These torques can be easily produced by spin-orbit effects, but for most conventional spin source materials, a high degree of crystal symmetry limits the

Staggered spin Hall conductivity

November 25, 2020
Fei Xue, Paul M. Haney
The intrinsic spin Hall effect plays an important role in spintronics applications, such as spin-orbit torque-based memory. The bulk space group symmetry determines the form of the bulk spin current conductivity tensor. This paper considers materials for

Interfacial spin-orbit torques

October 21, 2020
Vivek P. Amin, Paul M. Haney, Mark D. Stiles
Spin-orbit torques offer a promising mechanism to electrically control magnetization dynamics in nanoscale heterostructures. While spin-orbit torques occur predominately at interfaces, the physical mechanisms underlying these torques can originate in both

Coherent spin pumping in a strongly coupled magnon-magnon hybrid system

March 17, 2020
Yi Li, Wei Cao, Vivek P. Amin, Zhizhi Zhang, Jonathan Gibbons, Joseph Sklenar, John Pearson, Paul M. Haney, Mark D. Stiles, William E. Bailey, Valentine Novosad, Axel Hoffmann, Wei Zhang
We have experimentally identified coherent spin pumping acting as a dampinglike coupling in the magnon-magnon hybrid modes of permalloy/yttrium iron garnet (Py/YIG) bilayers. Using broadband ferromagnetic resonance, an ''avoided crossing" is observed well

Circular photogalvanic spectroscopy of Rashba splitting in 2D hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite multiple quantum wells

January 16, 2020
Xiaojie Liu, Ashish Chanana, Uyen Huynh, Fei Xue, Paul M. Haney, Steve Blair, Xiaomei Jiang, Valy Vardeny
The two-dimensional (2D)-phenylethyl ammonium lead iodide (2D-PEPI) is an exemplary hybrid organic-inorganic halide perovskite, possessing large spin-orbit coupling and forming multiple quantum wells (MQW). We have used helicity-dependent steady state

Unveiling defect-mediated charge-carrier recombination at the nanometer scale in polycrystalline solar cells

November 20, 2019
Yohan Yoon, Wei-Chang Yang, Dongheon Ha, Paul M. Haney, Daniel Hirsch, Heayoung Yoon, Renu Sharma, Nikolai Zhitenev
In this work, we employ two techniques, near-field scanning photocurrent microscopy (NSPM) and transmission electron microscope based cathodoluminescence spectroscopy (TEM-CL), to analyze the nanoscale electrical and optical properties of CdTe solar cells

Anomalous spin-orbit torques in magnetic single-layer films

July 22, 2019
Wenrui Wang, Tao Wang, Vivek P. Amin, Yang Wang, Anil Radhakrishna, Angie Davidson, Shane Allen, Thomas J. Silva, Hendrik Ohldag, Davor Balzar, Barry L. Zink, Paul M. Haney, John Xiao, D.G. Cahill, Virginia O. Lorenz, Xin Fan
Spin-orbit interaction (SOI) couples charge and spin transport, enabling electrical control of magnetization, the foundation of next-generation spintronic devices. A quint essential example of SOI-induced transport is the anomalous Hall effect (AHE), first

Intrinsic spin currents in ferromagnets

June 24, 2019
Vivek P. Amin, Junwen Li, Mark D. Stiles, Paul M. Haney
First principles calculations show that electric fields applied to ferromagnets generate spin currents flowing perpendicularly to the electric field. Reduced symmetry in these ferromagnets enables a wide variety of such spin currents. However, the total
