Superconducting devices with spin-orbit coupling

Electron spin flip scattering within materials leads to energy dissipation and ultimately this irreversible process limits the operating efficiency of devices based on spin-electronics (spintronics). Dissipationless spin currents can be generated by the quantum hall effect in material systems in...

Superconducting Spintronics

Below the critical temperature of a superconductor, electrons form Cooper pairs with an antiparallel spin alignment, and are in a singlet spin state. In contrast to superconductivity, ferromagnetism leads to a parallel alignment of electron spins, so when electrons pass through a ferromagnetic...

Oxide Interfaces

This project with Dr Atature (Cavendish) combines two radically different materials and fields of research, namely oxide interfaces and diamond nanocrystal magnetic resonance imaging (diamond nano-MRI) in order to reveal the exact nature of low-dimensional magnetic phenomena with nanometre spatial...
