Our group will be joining the Schwerpunktprogramm SPP 1538 on spin-caloritronics.
In collaboration with Henning Sirringhaus (lead PI; Cambridge), Joerg Wunderlich (Cambridge and Prague), and Iain McCulloch (Imperial College) we will explore a new mergence of organic physics and chemistry with spintronic physics to achieve new ways of spin-charge conversion.

Jairo Sinova has been honored by the AvH Professorship award. This will see him relocate to Johannes Gutenberg Universität in Mainz, Germany as of January 2014. This new wonderful opportunity has been made possible by many friends at Mainz, particularly Prof. Mathias Kläui, and all over the world. A principal task that he will undertake is to establish a new kind of interdisciplinary center that focuses on bringing together new fields and disciplines researching spin-phenomena that are ready for a new level of interaction. The various press releases are here and here.
