New magnetic materials for spintronics


Spin-based electronic (spintronic) devices utilize both carrier spin and charge to transmit or store information. Dilute magnetic semiconductors and organic magnets are promising spintronic materials. Research in my group focuses on developing a reliable theory of the magnetic, transport and optical properties of these compounds, with the ultimate goal of guiding experimental efforts in the search for optimal materials for spintronic device applications.
