We are very happy that, in spite of the heavy weather conditions, Kyoung-Whan Kim from the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology made it from Maryland to Mainz for a three day visit. He gave a very interesting talk on "Spin transport related to spin-orbit coupling."
Month: January 2016
This week, the INSPIRE group had the pleasure to welcome Prof. Roberto Raimondi from the University of Rome and Dr. Cosimo Gorini from the University of Regensburg. On January 26th, Raimondi gave a talk on "Spin current swapping and spin Hall effect in a 2DEG" presenting recent results about spin-orbit induced effects in a two-dimensional electron gas. Gorini talked about "Thermoelectric conversion in disordered nanowires" on January 28th. Of course, the group members used the chance to vividly discuss the theories presented.
The INSPIRE group took part in the open doors day of Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz by inviting secondary school students to dip a toe in the water of theoretical Spintronics. Karin Everschor and Jacob Gayles gave our guests a presentation entitled "The future technology of Spintronics – the diverse quantum world of condensed matter" introducing spintronics as a scientific discipline and giving the students a lively insight into the life and work of researchers in this field. After the theoretical part, Andreas Kehlberger from the Kläui Lab took the potential junior researchers on a tour of the laboratories of the experimentalists. We were very happy about the interest shown by the students and are looking forward to host the next collaborative open doors day of the Kläui Lab and INSPIRE/SPICE.
