Research Highlight: Spintronics

Spintronics is the manipulation of the spin of electron or hole currents in semiconductors with a goal of using the spin for communication information or performing caclulations. The dark regions in this image, from Prof. Sheena Murphy’s Lab, are regions of a 2D sample that have been etched away. As a perpendicular magnetic field increases, and the electron cyclotron radius shrinks, a voltage is measured whenever the electron cylclotron radius is an integer multiple of the separation between the leads. Different spin states can be deflected at different fields to yield a spin-polarized current.
