Spin Current Book Review:

Since the discovery of the giant magnetoresistance (GMR) effect in magnetic multilayers in 1988, a new branch of physics and technology, called spin-electronics or spintronics, has emerged, where the flow of electrical charge as well as the flow of electron spin, the so-called "spin current", are manipulated and controlled together. Recent progress in the physics of magnetism and the application of spin current has progressed in tandem with the nanofabrication technology of magnets and the engineering of interfaces and thin films. This book is intended to provide an introduction and guide to the new physics and applications of spin current. The emphasis is placed on the interaction between spin and charge currents in magnetic nanostructures.

Graphene in Spintronics Book Review:

The discovery and fabrication of new materials have opened the gate for new research fields in science and technology. The novel method of fabricating graphene, a purely 2D carbon lattice, and the discovery of the phenomenon of giant magnetoresistance (GMR) in magnetic multilayers are not exceptions. The latter has brought about the creation of the new technological field of spintronics, which utilizes both spin and charge degrees of freedom of electrons. As for the former, many applications have been proposed; however, no practical devices have yet been developed in the field of spintronics. The aim of this book is to provide possible hints to overcome the difficulties in graphene applications in the field of spintronics by comparing the physical properties of graphene and magnetoresistive (MR) phenomena in spintronics. The book will be useful for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students of physics, chemistry, and materials science and young researchers in nanotechnology and the field of spintronics.

Electronic and Spin Dependent Phenomena in Two dimensional Materials and Heterostructures Book Review:

Graphene has remarkable opportunities for spintronics due to its high mobility and long spin diffusion length, especially when encapsulated in hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN). Beyond the three basic processes of spin injection, spin transport, and spin detection, it is crucial to explore new methods of spin manipulation in order to develop novel architectures for spin-based logic. In the first chapter of this thesis, I briefly introduce the field of spintronics and graphene related research. In the second chapter, I present the spin diffusion model used in this thesis to analyze spin transport in graphene and heterostructures spintronics. In the third chapter, I present my work on gate-tunable spin transport in h-BN encapsulated graphene-based spin valves with one-dimensional ferromagnetic contacts. The non-local spin signal can be tuned by gate voltage and even change polarity. The gate-controlled spin polarity via magnetic proximity effect may overcome the usual need for an applied magnetic field and a magnetization reversal to implement the graphene-based spin logic. Beyond magnetic proximity effect, another route for graphene spintronics is to combine with other two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC). In the fourth chapter, I demonstrate spin injection from monolayer MoS2 to few-layer graphene following optical valley/spin exciation in MoS2 with circularly polarized light up to room temperature. The magnitude and direction of spin polarization is controlled by both helicity and photon energy. These results demonstrate a 2D spintronic/valleytronic system that achieves optical spin injection and lateral spin transport at room temperature in a single device, which paves the way for multifunctional 2D spintronic devices for memory and logic applications. While graphene/TMDC heterostructures hold great promise for the electrical and optical control of spins in graphene, the observed spin lifetimes in these heterostructures are short (

Recent Advances in Novel Materials for Future Spintronics Book Review:

As we all know, electrons carry both charge and spin. The processing of information in conventional electronic devices is based only on the charge of electrons. Spin electronics, or spintronics, uses the spin of electrons, as well as their charge, to process information. Metals, semiconductors, and insulators are the basic materials that constitute the components of electronic devices, and these types of materials have been transforming all aspects of society for over a century. In contrast, magnetic metals, half-metals (including zero-gap half-metals), magnetic semiconductors (including spin-gapless semiconductors), dilute magnetic semiconductors, and magnetic insulators are the materials that will form the basis for spintronic devices. This book aims to collect a range of papers on novel materials that have intriguing physical properties and numerous potential practical applications in spintronics.

Characterisation of Soft Magnetic Materials Under Rotational Magnetisation Book Review:

The book presents practical aspects related to the measurement of rotational power loss in soft magnetic materials. The book furthermore focuses on practical aspects of performing such measurements, the associated difficulties as well as solutions to the most common problems. Numerous practical aspects, hands-on experience, and most commonly encountered pitfalls are heavily discussed in the book. The text begins with introduction to magnetism, then follows with definitions of measurement methods of rotational power loss from physical viewpoint. Two chapters describe and detail the various sensors which can be employed for such measurements as well as all the aspects of designing, making, and using a magnetising apparatus. A synthesis of the likely optimal design of a magnetising apparatus is also given, preceded with the full reasoning based on all the research carried out to date. Characterisation of Soft Magnetic Materials Under Rotational Magnetisation serves as an excellent starting point for any student having to perform magnetic measurements under rotational magnetisation, but also under 1D, 2D or 3D excitation. Because the methods, sensors, and apparatus are extensively discussed it will also be a great reference for more senior researchers and experts in the field. There is a whole chapter devoted to analysis of measurement uncertainty. This subject is rarely published for magnetic measurements, which makes it more difficult for all researchers to understand the concepts and methodology used in uncertainty estimation. This chapter not only introduces the whole subject, but also provides multiple step-by-step examples which can be easily followed, from very simple cases to much more complex ones. All equations are presented with full SI units which greatly helps in practical application of the presented methodology. Each chapter is written in such a way that it can be studied on its own, so that the reader can focus only on the specific aspects, as required.

Tuning the Spin Transport and Magnetic Properties of 2D Materials at the Atomic Scale Book Review:

The study of two-dimensional (2D) materials has attracted considerable attention in the past decade. Due to the reduced dimensionality and atomically thin nature of these materials, 2D materials carry many unique properties compared to their 3D counterparts. They are also highly tunable through surface modification or in proximity to other materials. The development of 2D materials has also made a significant impact in the field of spintronics, which studies the electron spin and its associated magnetic moment for computation and information storage. The long spin lifetime and record-setting spin diffusion length in graphene, the demonstration of strong modulation of spin transport in 2D material heterostructures, and the discovery of magnetism in 2D van der Waals materials have brought many new directions as well as opportunities for advancing the field of spintronics. This dissertation focuses on the work of studying and tuning the spin transport and magnetic properties in 2D materials at the atomic scale. The spin transport section will start with understanding the tunneling spin injection process in graphene (Chapter 3), which is critical for the operation of a spintronic device. Next is a detailed discussion about theoretical modeling for extracting spin lifetime anisotropy with oblique spin precession measurement (Chapter 4), which is a good method to understand the spin relaxation in 2D materials. Lastly, on the topic of spin transport, one of the first experimental demonstrations of proximity-induced exchange coupling and modulation of spin transport in graphene heterostructures is presented (Chapter 5). The magnetism in 2D materials section will start with the experimental demonstration of sublattice resolved hydrogen adsorption on bilayer graphene (Chapter 6), which provides a good method for realizing point defect induced magnetism in graphene-based systems. It will be followed with synthesis and characterization of intrinsic van der Waals magnet MnSe2 at the monolayer limit (Chapter 7), which is one of the first discoveries of room temperature intrinsic ferromagnetism in 2D van der Waals materials. Finally, some important tips in analyzing magnetic signals from 2D magnets with SQUID magnetometry will also be discussed (Chapter 8).

Magnetism and Spintronics in Carbon and Carbon Nanostructured Materials Book Review:

Magnetism and Spintronics in Carbon and Carbon Nanostructured Materials offers coverage of electronic structure, magnetic properties and their spin injection, and the transport properties of DLC, graphene, graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and their different composite materials. This book is a valuable resource for those doing research or working with carbon and carbon-related nanostructured materials for electronic and magnetic devices. Carbon-based nanomaterials are promising for spintronic applications because their weak spin-orbit (SO) coupling and hyperfine interaction in carbon atoms entail exceptionally long spin diffusion lengths (~100μm) in carbon nanotubes and graphene. The exceptional electronic and transport features of carbon nanomaterials could be exploited to build multifunctional spintronic devices. However, a large spin diffusion length comes at the price of small SO coupling, which limits the possibility of manipulating electrons via an external applied field. Assesses the relative utility of a variety of carbon-based nanomaterials for spintronics applications Analyzes the specific properties that make carbon and carbon nanostructured materials optimal for spintronics and magnetic applications Discusses the major challenges to using carbon nanostructured materials as magnetic agents on a mass scale
