Interplay of spin-orbit coupling and magnetism in 2D materials


This theoretical project aims at exploiting different transport modes supported by novel two dimensional van der Waals heterostructures, using DFT and phenomenological methods. The WPs are structured to find implications---in lateral and vertical transport---of the spin interactions (exchange and spin-orbit coupling), but also at modifying them by gating. The scope covers spin-orbit torques, magnetic tunnel junctions, and resonant scattering in functionalized twisted graphene bilayers.
