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

Conventional superconductivity is mediated by singlet Cooper pairs of electrons which have antiparallel spins. The proximity effect between a superconductor (S) and a ferromagnet (F) tends to strongly suppress superconductivity because the internal exchange field of the latter acts to align...
