Area of Study / Keywords

Spintronics Microsystems and Nanodevices Solid State Electronics


Our research is on the topic of "spintronics" or "spin-based electronics". Spintronics is a sub-area under solid-state electronics, which aims to control the spins of electrons (instead of or in addition to its charge) to realize data storage or information processing functions. Tiny, nanoscale structures play a crucial role in spintronics, because such restricted geometries often offer additional control on spins. In this context, our recent work focuses on spin phenomena in chiral (left- or right-handed) materials and two-dimensional Van der Waals materials, which hold promise for future spintronics.
