A triplon refers to a fictitious particle that carries angular momentum S=1 corresponding to the elementary excitation in a broad class of quantum dimerized spin systems. Such systems without magnetic order have long been studied as a testing ground for quantum properties of spins. Although triplons have been found to play a central role in thermal and magnetic properties in dimerized magnets with singlet correlation, a spin angular momentum flow carried by triplons, a triplon current, has not… Expand

One-dimensional spinon spin currents
Spin currents can be carried by electrons and by magnons. Experiments now show that, in one-dimensional spin chains, spin currents can also be carried by particle-like excitations known as spinons.Expand
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.

Thermal Generation of Spin Current in an Antiferromagnet.
The above results establish that an antiferromagnetic spin wave can be an effective carrier of spin current. Expand
Spin transport in insulators without exchange stiffness
It is concluded that exchange stiffness is not required for efficient spin transport, which challenges conventional models and provides new material-design strategies for spintronic devices. Expand
Magnon Pairs and Spin-Nematic Correlation in the Spin Seebeck Effect.
This work reports unusual field-induced suppression of the spin Seebeck effect (SSE) in a quasi-one-dimensional frustrated spin-1/2 magnet LiCuVO_{4}, known to exhibit spin-nematic correlation in a wide range of external magnetic field B. Expand
Long-distance transport of magnon spin information in a magnetic insulator at room temperature
Although electron motion is prohibited in magnetic insulators, the electron spin can be transported by magnons. Such magnons, generated and detected using all-electrical methods, are now shown toExpand
Linear-response theory of spin Seebeck effect in ferromagnetic insulators
We formulate a linear response theory of the spin Seebeck effect, i.e., a spin voltage generation from heat current flowing in a ferromagnet. Our approach focuses on the collective magneticExpand
Paramagnetic spin pumping.
The inverse spin Hall voltage induced by spin-current injection has been observed in the Pt layer not only in the ferromagnetic phase of La2NiMnO6, but also in a wide temperature range above TC. Expand
Generation of spin currents from one-dimensional quantum spin liquid
Spin-Seebeck effects (SSEs) in a one-dimensional quantum spin liquid (QSL) system have been investigated in a Sr2CuO3/Pt hybrid structure. Sr2CuO3 contains one-dimensional spin- 1 2 chains in whichExpand
Origin of the spin Seebeck effect in compensated ferrimagnets
It is demonstrated that higher-energy exchange magnons play a key role in the SSE, which is caused by thermally excited spin dynamics that are converted to a voltage by the inverse spin Hall effect at the interface to a heavy metal contact. Expand
