Curved nanochannels allow independent tuning of charge and spin currents

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 30 сентября, 2019 - 18:47
To increase the efficiency of microchips, 3D structures are now being investigated. However, spintronic components, which rely on electron spin rather than charge, are always flat. To investigate how to connect these to 3D electronics, physicists have created curved spin transport channels. They discovered that this new geometry makes it possible to independently tune charge and spin currents.
