A publication by Ricardo Zarzuela and Jairo Sinova about the spin-charge transport theory and spin-transfer physics in frustrated magnets has been published in Physical Review B.
They present a new theory based on the doped Hubbard model and the slave-boson formalism. The results of their work point towards possible new Hall physics thhat was previously unanticipated in the studied frustrated materials.
You can find the publication under PhysRevB.105.024423.
Jairo Sinova has become an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Henriette Herz Scout, selected in November 2021 with another 18 scientists in Germany. JGU has been one of the most successful in this program in this round (see press release, in German). Being a AvH Scout means that Sinova can directly nominate an outstanding young scientist for a prestigious AvH Fellowship directly, without having to go through a long application process and can join the group in a relatively short (a few weeks) time.
A joint publication of the London Centre for Nanotechnology and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology together with Jairo Sinova about Van der Waals layered systems has been published in Nature Reviews Physics.
They present fundamentals on van der Waals magnetism and spin–orbit coupling effects in 2D systems. It is discussed how the coexistance of both effects could establish new ways to engineer robust spin textures. The results will help in designing future non-volatile memory devices that utilize the unique properties of 2D materials.
