Spin Transport in 2D Membranes

Group theory is a powerful tool to investigate spin-dependent transport and optical properties. It allows one to identify important processes and to define the physics with a minimal set of material dependent parameters. In this talk, I will present our recent findings for the spin transport in 2D membranes including monolayer transition-metal dichalogonides, graphene [1,2], and silicene. I will focus on spin flips induced by flexural phonons and show that the spin relaxation is ultrafast for electrons in free-standing membranes while being mitigated in supported membranes. This behavior is universal in 2D membranes that respect mirror symmetry and it leads to a counterintuitive inverse relation between mobility and spin relaxation. The findings will be compared with the case of graphene.

Hanan Dery

Associate Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Rochester
Hanan Dery, a specialist in the emerging field of spintronics, joined the Department of ECE in July, 2007. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Associate in Lu Sham's group in the Department of Physics, University of California San Diego (UCSD). During this time, he worked on spintronics, seeking ways to integrate information based on electron spin into semiconductors. Dery earned his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Technion-Israel Institute of... Read More →
