An ICTP virtual meeting
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.
This mini workshop will cover selected spin-orbit phenomena in low-dimensional materials, comprising their potential and concrete realizations for spin-orbitronics, mostly from the computational-materials perspective, but including also experimental view and results. 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.
