Spintronics
The main goal of the Work Package is: Spintronics is an establishment of the ultimate potential of graphene and two-dimensional materials for spintronic applications.
This starts with the engineering of efficient room temperature spin injection and detection, long distance spin transport, spin gating and spin manipulation in graphene devices. Spin transport is studied in large scale polycrystalline graphene samples and optimisation of proximity effects between graphene and magnetic insulators and strong spin-orbit coupling materials is prioritised. The consortium works towards the demonstration of practical graphene spintronic devices such as coupled nano-oscillators for applications in fields of space communication, high‐speed radio links, vehicle radar and interchip communication applications.
