Symposium F.NM06-Spin Dynamics in Materials for Quantum Sensing, Optoelectronics and Spintronics
Solid-state quantum information processing is based on the ability to first manipulate quantum states and then to transfer and store this information in a more complex network. The spin degree of freedom is a promising candidate for this transduction. Recent advances in measurements of coherent spin dynamics underlie fundamental advances in sensing, quantum information processing, and low-power (non-quantum) devices such as magnetic memory and spin logic devices.
A wide variety of materials spanning semiconductors, metals, and insulators exhibit coherent spin dynamics. Thus, studies of these effects are of interest to multiple material platforms. Each material system has its own characteristics and advantages. At a single spin level, however, the interaction with external fields (microwaves, light, effective and applied fields …) can result in very similar dynamics in different systems such as diamond color centers, carriers in 2D materials, organic light emitting diodes, silicon quantum dots, and complex oxide heterostructures. With new fabrication techniques the community now has access to interesting hybrid systems such that quantum states prepared in one layer may be transferred and read out in an adjacent material system.
The focus of the symposium will be on novel materials and their heterostructures, experimental protocols and devices in which these effects can potentially occur at elevated temperature.
Topics will include:
- Spin and valley dynamics in two-dimensional semiconductors and hybrid van der Waals structures
- Diamond magnetometry
- Coherent spin-optical conversation for quantum information : quantum dots, single defects
- Optically or electrically induced magnetization in nano-structures
- Spin/color centers in insulators and wide-gap semiconductors
- Coherent magnonics and coherent magnon/spin and magnon/photon coupling
- Spin transport dynamics in oxides, semiconductors, and metals
- Spin torque and spin torque devices
- Manipulation of singlet/triplet conversion in organic materials and devices
- A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
