ICTP Workshop on 2D Materials for Spin-Orbitronics
The emerging field of spin-orbitronics utilizes the relativistic spin-orbit interactions and is opening fascinating new directions for basic research and exciting potential applications in spintronics.
Low-dimensional materials provide a fertile ground for generating interesting spin-orbit phenomena and are also ideal for incorporation in devices. The presentations will span the range from basic features to the forefront results in the field and are targeting final-year graduate students and early-career researchers in general. The talks will include the speakers'views of the current trends, challenges and future directions in their fields and will be followed by discussion sessions.
- Properties and potential of 2D materials for spin-orbitronics
- Skyrmions and exotic magnetism
- Spin-orbit torque
