Berry Phase origin of the planar spin Hall effect

  title={Berry Phase origin of the planar spin Hall effect},
  author={Haolin Pan and Dazhi Hou and Yang Gao},
The Berry phase origin is elaborated for the recent-discovered planar spin Hall effect which features current-induced spin polarization within the plane of the Hall deflection. We unravel a spin-repulsion vector governing the planar spin Hall effect, providing a transparent criteria for identifying intrinsic planar spin Hall materials. Finite spin-repulsion vector is found permitted in 13 crystalline point groups, revealing a big number of unexplored planar spin Hall systems. Our result can be…

Spin Hall effect of a conserved current: Conditions for a nonzero spin Hall current
We study the spin Hall effect taking into account the impurity scattering effect as general as possible with the focus on the definition of the spin current. The conserved bulk spin current (Zhang et
Spin Hall effects
In solid-state materials with strong relativistic spin-orbit coupling, charge currents generate transverse spin currents. The associated spin Hall and inverse spin Hall effects distinguish between
Universal intrinsic spin Hall effect.
It is argued that in a high-mobility two-dimensional electron system with substantial Rashba spin-orbit coupling, a spin current that flows perpendicular to the charge current is intrinsic, and the intrinsic spin-Hall conductivity has a universal value for zero quasiparticle spectral broadening.
Coexistence of large conventional and planar spin Hall effect with long spin diffusion length in a low-symmetry semimetal at room temperature
This study suggests that manipulation of crystalline symmetries and strong SOC opens access to new charge-spin interconversion configurations and spin–orbit torques for spintronic applications.
Observation of the antiferromagnetic spin Hall effect
The out-of-plane spins from the antiferromagnetic spin Hall effect are favourable for the efficient switching of perpendicular magnetized devices, which is required for high-density applications.
Semiclassical spin transport in spin-orbit-coupled bands.
A semiclassical theory of spin transport that is valid for spin-orbit coupled bands is developed, and an expression for the intrinsic spin-Hall conductivity of a hole-doped semiconductor agrees with the Kubo formula prediction for the same quantity.
Spin Hall effect on the kagome lattice with Rashba spin-orbit interaction
We study the spin Hall effect in the kagome lattice with Rashba spin-orbit coupling. The conserved spin Hall conductance sigma(s)(xy) (see text) and its two components, i.e., the conventional term
Spin currents, spin torques, and the concept of spin superfluidity
In magnets with non-collinear spin configuration the expectation value of the conventionally defined spin current operator contains a contribution which renormalizes an external magnetic field and
Spin-orbit interaction in a two-dimensional electron gas: a SU(2) formulation
Spin-orbit interaction is usefully classified as extrinsic or intrinsic, depending on its origin: the potential due to random impurities (extrinsic), or the crystalline potential associated with the
Conserved spin and orbital angular momentum Hall current in a two-dimensional electron system with Rashba and Dresselhaus spin-orbit coupling
We study theoretically the spin and orbital angular momentum (OAM) Hall effect in a high mobility two-dimensional electron system with Rashba and Dresselhuas spin-orbit coupling by introducing both
