Spintronic phenomena at unconventional hybrid interfaces
Prof. Dr. Angela Wittmann (Institut für Physik, Universität Mainz)

According to Moore’s law, the development of charge-based devices is fast approaching its limits. In response to this, spintronics has become one of the most promising alternatives. Its paradigm-changing nature lies in making use of the spin degree of freedom in addition to the electron’s charge and mass for encoding information. Particularly regarding the development of novel and versatile devices for different applications, tunable spintronic properties at hybrid interfaces in unconventional materials systems are of paramount interest.
In the first part of this talk, I would like to give a brief insight into spin currents in hybrid molecule-magnet systems. We will explore the unique tunability of spin injection and diffusion by molecular design. The second part will focus on unravelling the domain structure in antiferromagnetic thin films.
