Spin Hall effect in a magnetic field

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


When a spin-polarized current is injected into a non-magnetic semiconductor, a transverse electric field known as Hall voltage is generated. By using a macroscopic diffusion equation, we derive the Hall voltage in the presence of both spin current and magnetic field. Novel features such as oscillating Hall signals as a function of the magnetic field and geometrical dependence of Hall signals are predicted.
