Materials with significant spin-orbit coupling enable efficient spin-to-charge interconversion, which can be utilized in novel spin electronic devices. A number of elements, mainly heavy metals (HMs), have been identified to produce a sizable spin current (<inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">${j}_{s}$ </tex-math></inline-formula>), while supplied with a charge current (<inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">${j}$ </tex-math></inline-formula>), detected mainly in the neighboring…

Spin Hall magnetoresistance and spin orbit torque efficiency in Pt/FeCoB bilayers
The spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR) of Pt/FeCoB bilayers with in-plane magnetocrystalline anisotropy was analysed with respect to a second order effect in the sensing current which acts, through
Spin Torque Study of the Spin Hall Conductivity and Spin Diffusion Length in Platinum Thin Films with Varying Resistivity.
Measurements of the spin torque efficiencies in perpendicularly magnetized Pt/Co bilayers where the Pt resistivity ρ_{Pt} is strongly dependent on thickness t_Pt show consistent with an intrinsic spin Hall effect mechanism.
Magneto-Optical Detection of the Spin Hall Effect in Pt and W Thin Films.
The measurement of the interfacial spin accumulation induced by the spin Hall effect in Pt and W thin films using magneto-optical Kerr microscopy is reported and it is shown that the Kerr rotation has opposite sign in Ptand W and scales linearly with current density.

Spin Hall effects have surged as promising phenomena for spin logics operations without ferromagnets. However, the magnitude of the detected electric signals at room temperature in metallic systems
Maximizing Spin-Orbit-Torque Efficiency of Pt/Ti Multilayers: Trade-Off Between Intrinsic Spin Hall Conductivity and Carrier Lifetime
We report a comprehensive study of the maximization of the spin Hall ratio ({\theta}SH) in Pt thin films by the insertion of sub-monolayer layers of Ti to decrease carrier lifetime while minimizing
Optimization of spin Hall magnetoresistance in heavy-metal/ferromagnetic-metal bilayers
The results allow determination of different contributions to the magnetoresistance, which can play an important role in optimizing prospective magnetic stray field sensors and may be useful in the determination of spin transport properties of metallic magnetic heterostructures in other experiments based on magnetores resistance measurements.
Large room temperature spin-to-charge conversion signals in a few-layer graphene/Pt lateral heterostructure
The spin Hall effect is exploited by using Pt, a non-magnetic metal with strong spin-orbit coupling, to generate and detect pure spin currents in a few-layer graphene channel, achieving a remarkable spin-to-charge voltage signal at room temperature.
Large spin Hall magnetoresistance and its correlation to the spin-orbit torque in W/CoFeB/MgO structures
The report of a systematic study of the magnetoresistance of W/CoFeB/MgO structures and its correlation with the current-induced torque to the magnetization demonstrates that MR in a non-magnet/ferromagnet structure can be utilized to understand other closely correlated spin-orbit coupling effects such as the inverse spin Hall effect or thespin-orbit spin transfer torques.
Dependence of the efficiency of spin Hall torque on the transparency of Pt/ferromagnetic layer interfaces
We report that spin current transport across Pt-ferromagnet (FM) interfaces is strongly dependent on the type and the thickness of the FM layer and on post-deposition processing protocols. By
