Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
This seminar focusses on spin dependend effects in solids. Spin caloric phaenomena (spin and charge transport in samples where a temperature gradient is applied) will be discussed as well as spin dynamics and the spin pump effect. with the latter pure spin currents can be produceed which are relevant for fundamental research and spin electronics.
After successful participation in the module the student can
use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.
They have learned about spin-dependend effects in solids.
solid state physics, quantum mechanics
