Experts explain their spintronics research

The International Conference on Nanoscale Magnetism 2013 was held at Istanbul Turkey in early September. The organizers published this nice video showing several Spintronics experts explaining what Spintronics is all about and more specifically explain their own research:

University of Utah's Professor Z. Valy Vardeny talks about Organic spintronics

Professor Z. Valy Vardeny from the University of Utah talks about several important developments in the field of organic spintronics and magnetic field effect in organic optoelectronic devices.

Vardeny talks about a spin-OLED that they developed in 2012 using using two FM injecting electrodes, where the electroluminescence depends on the mutual orientation of the electrode magnetization directions. This development has opened up research studies into organic spin-valves in the space-charge limited current regime.

Video lecture: electronic spin polarization in semiconductor nanostructures

Makoto Kohda from the Tohoku University gave a special presentation titled "electronic spin polarization in semiconductor nanostructures". In his talk Makoto discusses spin-polarized current generation without external magnetic fields or ferromagnets (by using Stern-Gerlach spin separation in semiconductor nanostructures). The talk outline is fundamental technologies for Spintronics, spin-dependent force for spin generation/detection, quantum point contact (QPC) for inducting spin polarization, temperature stability for spin polarization in QPC and quantitative evaluation of spin polarization by shortnoise.

This presentation was given at Keio University's Semiconductor-Spintronics workshop which took place on January 24.

Video lecture: computational nano-materials design for spintronics

Hiroshi Katayama-Yoshida from Osaka University gave a special presentation titled "computational nano-materials Design for spintronics: design vs. realization". In his talk Hiroshi discusses Spinodal Nanotechnology (NT) as a new class of bottom-up NT, the design of high-solubility and ferromagnetism in IV-VI semiconductors, Spintronics device applications using 2D spinodal nano-decomposition and water-splitting and artificial photosynthesis by visible light using spinodal nano-decomposition.

This presentation was given at Keio University's Semiconductor-Spintronics workshop which took place on January 24.

Video lecture: recent topics in diluted magnetic semiconductors

Hideo Ohno from Tohoku University's center for spintronics integrated systems gave a special presentation titled "recent topics in diluted magnetic semiconductors". In his talk, Hideo gives an introduction to ferromagnetic (III,Mn)As and then discusses manipulation by electric-field and materials systems other than (III,Mn)As.
