Spintronics by Design

My work “Graphene-multiferroic interfaces for spintronics applications” has just been published on Scientific Reports. First principles calculations tell us the best way to combine the properties of two class of materials – graphene and multiferroics – in a new hybrid structure that takes the best of both worlds: high carrier velocity from graphene & magnetism form the BaMnO3 substrate.
