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.
