报告题目：Spin Pumping and Spin Hall Magnetoresistance Effects in PtPd/YIG heterostructures
报告摘要:The production, detection and controlling of pure spin current is an important research topic in Spintronics. It is significant to improve the production of the pure spin current. The effect of spin orbit coupling (SOC) on the spin mixing conductance and spin Hall effect from spin pumping in PtxPd1-x /YIG were studied in both experiments and theory. The spin mixing conductance and the spin Hall angle can be regulated by spin-orbit interaction. The spin Hall conductivity in PdPt alloys turns out to be dominated by the skew scattering term. In particular, the skew scattering parameter has for the first time been rigorously demonstrated to increase with increasing SOC strength. The spin diffusion length (SDL) was studied by spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR). SDL is found to decrease when Pd atoms are replaced by heavier Pt atoms. Meanwhile, the spin diffusion length is invariant when the electron momentum relaxation time changes, indicating the observation of D’yakonov-Perel’ spin relaxation mechanism in PtPd/YIG heterostructures. The physical framework based on D’yakonov-Perel’ mechanism also explains the non-monotonic temperature dependence of the spin Hall angle. A thorough grasp of the dependence of these parameters on the SOC strength in the present work could help to develop a better theoretical graph on the physics of SOC and spin orbit torque switching, relevant to next generation spintronic devices.
