In this work, electrical and spin properties of armchair silicene nanoribbon (ASiNR) in the presence of charged impurity is studied. The non-equilibrium Green's function along with multi-orbital tight-binding is applied to obtain transmission probability. different type of spin transmission probability in the ASiNR on a substrate is investigated. The charged impurities are located in the underlying substrate. Spin-flip along the channel is calculated by using spin transmission probability. Spin… Expand
