The spin Hall effect (SHE) is an important spintronics phenomenon, which allows transforming a charge current into a spin current and vice versa without the use of magnetic materials or magnetic fields. To gain new insight into the physics of the SHE and to identify materials with a substantial spin Hall conductivities (SHC), we performed high-precision, high-throughput ab initio electronic structure calculations of the intrinsic SHC for over 20,000 non-magnetic crystals. The calculations…

Commentary: The Materials Project: A materials genome approach to accelerating materials innovation

Accelerating the discovery of advanced materials is essential for human welfare and sustainable, clean energy. In this paper, we introduce the Materials Project (www.materialsproject.org), a core

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

Coherence control of Hall charge and spin currents.

Using two-color optical coherence control techniques in intrinsic GaAs at 80 K with orthogonally polarized 70 fs, 1430 and 715 nm pulses, we generate a pure spin source current that yields a

Direct electronic measurement of the spin Hall effect

Electrical measurements of the spin Hall effect in a diffusive metallic conductor are reported, using a ferromagnetic electrode in combination with a tunnel barrier to inject a spin-polarized current to reveal opportunities for efficient spin detection without the need for magnetic materials.

Berry phase effects on electronic properties

Ever since its discovery, the Berry phase has permeated through all branches of physics. Over the last three decades, it was gradually realized that the Berry phase of the electronic wave function

Crystal structures of all the possible phases encountered in several Ln-Ir(Ln = La, Ce, Nd, Gd, Y and Er) systems were investigated using powder X-ray-diffraction technique and comparison with powder

Conversion of spin current into charge current at room temperature: Inverse spin-Hall effect

The inverse process of the spin-Hall effect (ISHE), conversion of a spin current into an electric current, was observed at room temperature. A pure spin current was injected into a Pt thin film using
