Semiconductor (SC) spintronics [1-4] aims to integrate memory and logic functions into a single device. Ferromagnetic tunnel contacts have emerged as a robust and technically viable method to inject spin current into a SC up to room temperature, and to detect it [3-7]. Intriguingly, it has been established that the spin current in ferromagnetic tunnel contacts can be created by thermal means (driven by a heat flow), namely Seebeck spin tunneling . So far, the creation of thermal spin current relies on the spin-dependent energy dispersion of electronic states around the Fermi energy (EF), which determines thermoelectric properties. In the first part of my talk, I will describe a conceptually new approach to tailor the thermal spin current in ferromagnetic tunnel contacts to SCs exploiting spin-dependent thermoelectric properties away from EF through the application of a bias voltage across the tunnel contact [9,10].
Combining superconductivity with spintronics brings in a variety of notable phenomena which do not exist in the normal state, for instance quantum coherence, superconducting exchange coupling and spin-polarized triplet supercurrents [11,12]. This nascent field of superconducting spintronics promises to realize zero-energy-dissipation spin transfer and magnetization switching. Recent equilibrium (zero-bias) studies of the Josephson effect in S/FM/S (FM: ferromagnet; S: Superconductor) junctions and the critical temperature Tc modulation in FM/S/FM and S/FM/FM' superconducting spin valves have demonstrated that engineered magnetically-inhomogeneous S/FM interfaces can generate long-range triplet pairing states which explicitly carry spin [11,12]. However, direct measurement of triplet spin transport through a singlet S has not so far been achieved. In the second part, I will describe an essentially different approach, namely, a time-dependent ferromagnetic magnetization [ferromagnetic resonance (FMR)] can drive spin-polarized transport in a singlet S via spin-triplet states induced by spin-orbit coupling [13,14].
If time permits, I will briefly outline outstanding technical issues for the realization of energy-efficient (or even dissipation-less) spintronic technologies and present my research direction of how to address these issues via topology physics [15,16].
