Evidence for Spin Swapping in an Antiferromagnet
In accordance with the MGI mission to convert materials discovery to application as quickly as possible, the LaFeO3material we studied has now been incorporated into spin caloritronic devices. Our discovery helps to set the stage for potential commercialization of conversion of parallel temperature gradients to a voltage. For the MGI workforce development, we have developed a tight theory-materials synthesis-device characterization collaboration. We have held regular group meetings over the course of our project where each team member has become intimately acquainted with the details of the other components of the DMREF project.
A schematic description of our material system and route towards new spintronic devices, and our research feedback loop is shown on the right.
