Welcome to SPINORBITRONICS project
„Spin Hall effect in antiferromagnets”

The aim of the project are both theoretical and experimental
 investigations of hybrid antiferromagnet/ferromagnet (AFM/FM) structures 
for maximization of spin current generated using spin Hall effect. In
 novel spintronic circuits such spin current mediates information that
 can be written and read using spin-orbit torque induced on ferromagnet.
 These phenomena are going to be examined in fabricated test devices,
 consisting of different combinations of buffer/AFM/FM multilayers, by 
dynamic measurements of the  anomalous Hall and magnetoresistance
 effects. Theoretical approaches based on quasi-classical transport
 equations and Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation are going to be developed
 for further interpretation of experimental results and for estimation of
 optimal parameters, that govern spin-orbit-coupling induced effects in 
the examined systems. The results will allow for the development of
 novel spintronic circuits.

The project started in 2017 and will run until the end of 2020.

The project is realized in the Department of Electronics at AGH University of Science and Technology and is supported by National Science Centre in Poland grant No. UMO-201623/B/ST3/01430.
