Spin transport in nanostructures

 

Prof. Hyun Woo Lee

Pohang University of Science and Technology 

 

  

 

Charge and spin are two core properties of electrons. In this colloquium, various spin transport phenomena will be discussed. The first half provides a pedagogical introduction to the spin flow through simple examples including spin injection, spin Hall effect, pure spin current. The second half discusses application of the spin transport in nanostructure devices with main emphasis on the spin transfer torque.

Introduction:

Professor Lee received his Ph.D from MIT in 1996. He became an assistant professor in Korea Institute for Advanced Study in 2001 and Seoul National University in 2002. He moved to POSTECH in 2002 and was promoted to full professor in department of physics at POSTECH in 2012.
