Electrical control of magnetization is of crucial importance for integrated spintronics devices. Spinorbit torques (SOT) in heavy-metal/ferromagnetic heterostructures have emerged as promising tool to achieve efficiently current-induced magnetization reversal. However, the microscopic origin of the SOT is being debated,with the spin Hall effect (SHE) due to nonlocal spin currents and the spin Rashba-Edelstein effect (SREE) due to local spin polarization at the interface being the primary… 

Observation of long-range orbital transport and giant orbital torque

The generation of spin-current is integral for the successful development of spintronic devices however the orbital counterpart is also expected to be potentially advantageous. Here, using Ni/Ti

The 2022 magneto-optics roadmap

Magneto-optical (MO) effects, viz. magnetically induced changes in light intensity or polarization upon reflection from or transmission through a magnetic sample, were discovered over a century and a

Giant orbital Hall effect and orbital-to-spin conversion in 3d, 5d, and 4f metallic heterostructures

The orbital Hall effect provides an alternative means to the spin Hall effect to convert a charge current into a flow of angular momentum. Recently, compelling signatures of orbital Hall effects have

Long-range current-induced spin accumulation in chiral crystals

Chiral materials, similarly to human hands, have distinguishable right-handed and left-handed enantiomers which may behave differently in response to external stimuli. Here, we use for the first time

Current induced switching in Mn2Au from first principles

It is well established that it is possible to switch certain antiferromagnets electrically, yet the in-terplay of N´eel-spin-orbit torques (NSOT) and thermal activation is only poorly understood.

Spin Hall Effect

It is proposed that when a charge current circulates in a paramagnetic metal a transverse spin imbalance will be generated, giving rise to a ``spin Hall voltage.'' Similarly, it is proposed that when

Current-driven spin torque induced by the Rashba effect in a ferromagnetic metal layer.

It is demonstrated that strong magnetic fields can be induced in ferromagnetic metal films lacking structure inversion symmetry through the Rashba effect and this process makes it a realistic candidate for room-temperature spintronic applications.

Giant antidamping orbital torque originating from the orbital Rashba-Edelstein effect in ferromagnetic heterostructures

Enhancing the in-plane current-induced torque efficiency in inversion-symmetry-breaking ferromagnetic heterostructures is of both fundamental and practical interests for emerging magnetic memory

Observation of spin-orbit effects with spin rotation symmetry

The spin–orbit interaction enables interconversion between a charge current and a spin current. It is usually believed that in a nonmagnetic metal (NM) or at a NM/ferromagnetic metal (FM) bilayer

Electric-field effect on magnetic moments in Co ultra-thin films deposited on Pt

This study investigates the electric-field effect on magnetic moments in perpendicularly magnetized Co ultra-thin films on a Pt underlayer. By applying electric fields to the Co surface through

Observation of the Orbital Rashba-Edelstein Magnetoresistance.

We report the observation of magnetoresistance (MR) that could originate from the orbital angular momentum (OAM) transport in a permalloy (Py)/oxidized Cu (Cu^{*}) heterostructure: the orbital

Orbital Rashba effect in a surface-oxidized Cu film

Recent experimental observation of unexpectedly large current-induced spin-orbit torque in surface oxidized Cu on top of a ferromagnet suggested a possible role of the orbital Rashba effect (ORE).

We report a quantitative investigation of the absence/presence of spin current generation by interfacial spin-orbit coupling (ISOC) at a normal metal/ferromagnet (NM/FM) interface. Utilizing the

Detection of the Orbital Hall Effect by the Orbital–Spin Conversion

The intrinsic orbital Hall effect (OHE), the orbital counterpart of the spin Hall effect, was predicted and studied theoretically for more than one decade, yet to be observed in experiments. Here we
