Workshop on "Spin Orbit Coupling and Spin Mechanics"

October 23rd - October 24th 2015 at the SPICE Center

The 29th REIMEI and ERATO-SQR workshop focused on effects of the spin-orbit interaction and the coupling of the spin and lattice degrees of freedom in magnetic nanostructures.

The spin Hall effect has moved into the mainstream of magnetism by generating so-called spin-orbit torques on proximity magnets and being an efficient spin current detector. The electrical and thermal actuation of the magnetization of insulators with extremely high quality factors of the magnetization dynamics has focused attention on the bosonic degrees of freedom in spintronics and the importance of the spin-lattice and spin-rotation couplings.
