Prof. Eiji Saitoh

Topic:

Spin Current Physics and Applications

Spin current, a spin counterpart of electric current, refers to a flow of electrons’ spin angular momentum in condensed matter. Spin current has been ignored in electromagnetism in matter for many years, since it disappears in a very short distance, typically at the sub-micrometer scale. However, recent developments in nanotechnology have enabled us to make minute structures. For example, in integrated circuits composed of nanoscale wires, spin current may become as important a quantity as electric current. Spin current can be detected using the inverse spin Hall effect: conversion of spin current into electricity in condensed matter. As a result, a lot of spin-current-related phenomena have been discovered.
In my talk, I will guide you around the world of spin current science. First, I will give an introduction to the basic concept of spin current, followed by a review of various phenomena discovered using spin current as a guiding principle, such as spin-Seebeck effects, other spin-caloritronics effects, and spin-mechanics effects. The physics and materials science behind these effects will also be discussed.

Biography:

Eiji Saitoh received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Tokyo in 1996, 1998, and 2001, respectively. He was an assistant professor and a lecturer at the Department of Physics and the Department of Physico-Informatics, Keio University. In 2004 he was a visiting scholar at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. In 2009 he became a professor at the Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University. He is also a professor at the World Premier International Advanced Institute for Materials Research (WPI-AIMR), Tohoku University. He is currently acting as research director of the Exploratory Research for Advanced Technology (ERATO) Spin Quantum Rectification (SQR) project in the Japan Science and Technology (JST) Agency.

Prof. Saitoh has published over 200 technical articles in peer-reviewed journals, including books and review articles, and has given more than 100 invited and plenary presentations at international conferences. He received the Japan Academy Medal in 2011 and the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Young Scientist Award in 2009. His current research interest is physics of spintronics and nanoelectronics.
