Future of Spintronics


Jan 23rd 2019 - Jan 23rd 2019

Loughborough, United Kingdom

Updated 12/11/18

The field of spintronics (spin electronics) promises lower energy, more robust data processing and storage, and a potential solution to the ‘thermal instability’ problem faced by Moore’s Law. As the research field has developed, different manifestations of spintronics have been demonstrated such as:

  • spin injection into organic materials
  • utilising proximity effects with superconductors (superconducting spintronics)
  • heat driven generation of a spin current (spin caloritronics)
  • topologically protected magnetic states (skyrmions).

This workshop will provide both:

  • an introduction to spintronics and skyrmions
  • an overview of the current state of the art


  • Dr Kelly Morrison, Loughborough University
  • Dr Andrew Caruana, STFC
  • Ms Laura Stuffins, Loughborough University


A detailed programme is stil being devleoped, but confirmed speakers and subjects are shown below.

We will start at 10:00, and aim to finish by 17:00 at the latest.


The dress code for the event is business attire / smart casual.
