Generation of Current Vortex by Spin Current in Rashba Systems.
Employing unbiased large-scale time-dependent density-matrix renormalization-group simulations, the generation of a charge-current vortex via spin injection in the Rashba system is demonstrated and the electromagnetic field that accompanies the vortex is predicted.
Spin currents in thermodynamic equilibrium: The challenge of discerning transport currents
Generating spin currents ~SC’s ! is one of the central goals of spintronics, 1 and various mechanisms for electrical and optical injection of SC’s have been proposed. Recently, the interest in SC’s
Nonlocal spin-charge conversion via Rashba spin-orbit interaction
We show theoretically that conversion between spin and charge by spin-orbit interaction in metals occurs even in a non-local setup where magnetization and spin-orbit interaction are spatially
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
Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction as a Consequence of a Doppler Shift due to Spin-Orbit-Induced Intrinsic Spin Current.
This work presents a physical picture based on the idea of the Doppler shift by an intrinsic spin current induced by spin-orbit interaction under broken inversion symmetry and confirms the relation between the interaction and the electronic band structures.
Spin hydrodynamic generation
Magnetohydrodynamic generators use magnetic fields to convert the kinetic energy of conducting fluids into electricity. Fluid motion is now shown to generate spin currents, which can induce electric
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.
Subband structure of a two-dimensional electron gas formed at the polar surface of the strong spin-orbit perovskite KTaO3.
Despite the strong spin-orbit coupling, the measurements provide a direct upper bound for the potential Rashba spin splitting of only Δk(parallel)}~0.02 Å(-1) at the Fermi level.
