19.02.2019 – Joint publication by Organic Spintronics Team accepted by Nature Electronics

A joint publication by the Organic Spintronics Team and other ERC Synergy Project collaborators has been accepted for publication in Nature Electronics. This paper presents experimental measurements of extremely long spin diffusion lengths in high-mobility organic polymer materials. Modeling by the Organic Spintronics Team explains this finding in terms of the weak up-down spin mixing found in planar conjugated polymers with weak spin-orbit coupling.

21.01.2019 JGU Magazine publishes an article about Prof. Jairo Sinova

The "JGU Magazine" publishes an article about Prof. Jairo Sinova in which readers get an insight of Jairos scientific career, the research field of spintronics and his love for Mainz. Further he talks about the Spin Phenomena Interdisciplinary Center (SPICE) and the Interdisciplinary Spintronics Research Group (INSPIRE) which he built up and leads at the Institute for Physics at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz.
