ICN2 researchers compute unprecedented values for spin lifetime anisotropy in graphene

Researchers of the ICN2 Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group, led by ICREA Prof. Stephan Roche, have published another paper on spin, this time reporting numerical simulations for spin relaxation in graphene/TMDC heterostructures. Published in Physical Review Letters, their calculations indicate a spin lifetime anisotropy that is orders of magnitude larger than anything observed in graphene until now. Here, lead author Aron Cummings explains the origin of this effect.

100xCiencia2: Co-creating Value in Scientific Research

100xCiencia.2 was held in Alicante yesterday and today. It brought together the vanguard of Spanish research: the Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu centers of excellence. The meeting was opened by Carmen Vela, Secretary of State for Research, Development and Innovation, and she highlighted the importance of approaching science and business: "Without transfer there is no innovation and without innovation there is no future"
