Spin waves in insulating magnets are ideal carriers for spin currents with low energy dissipation. An electric field can modify the dispersion of spin waves, by directly affecting, via spin-orbit coupling, the electrons that mediate the interaction between magnetic ions. Our microscopic calculations based on the superexchange model indicate that this effect of the electric field is sufficiently large to be used to effectively control spin currents. We apply these findings to the design of a… CONTINUE READING
