Charge-spin interconversion from density functional theory
Institute of Physics, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Slovakia
In the seminar presentation of a DFT-based quantum transport methodology to quantitatively address charge-spin interconversion in 2D crystals will be discussed. The novelty relies on the k-dependent evaluation of the spin polarization of the current, where k is the crystal momentum perpendicular to the direction of the current. This allows us to obtain the charge-spin fingerprint in reciprocal space for any material or combination of materials directly from DFT.
