Spin Engineering in Flexible and Functional Two-Dimensional Quantum Material Devices

Project description

Graphene could enable high-speed, low-power spintronics circuits

Two-dimensional (2D) quantum crystals provide new impetus for further exploring the development of faster and more energy-efficient spintronics devices. Atomically thin 2D quantum materials just like graphene have created unique possibilities for performing calculations using the intrinsic magnetic moment of electrons, called spin. Leveraging researchers’ expertise in flexible graphene spin circuits and precise characterisation of 2D magnetic crystals, the EU-funded SPINNER project aims to develop spin-based integrated circuits with lower-power spin functions and higher speed processing capabilities. The proposed new experiments will build upon researchers’ expertise in state-of-the-art spin and charge transport, µHall magnetometry, advanced nanofabrication methods and device engineering.
