Mini-Workshop on Spintronics and Magnetic Materials

Mini-Workshop on Spintronics and Magnetic Materials
Tuesday, 8th January 2019, 13:00-17:00, Swansea University, Vivian 9th floor – CTR/SI/Vivian/Rm 918


13:00-13:30 Adam Micolich
13:30-14:00 Dave Ritchie, Semiconductor quantum devices
The fabrication, operation and applications of a range of optical and electrical devices will be discussed. These include terahertz quantum cascade lasers, entangled photon sources, and single electron pumps.
14:00-14:30 Paul Meredith, Overview of work and future plans
14:30-15:00 Sophie Shermer, Karol Kalna, spinFET simulations and magnetic semiconductors
We will present a brief review of our bespoke spinFET simulator and some of the interesting results predicted for GaAs spinFETs then move on to our current efforts at building spintronics devices. A crucial prerequisite for the utilization of spin in electronic devices is the availability of spin polarized carriers. Dilute magnetic semiconductors such as Mn doped GaN provide a potential solution. We’ll present a brief summary of preliminary results on doping GaN/AlGaN wafer with Mn by thermal annealing.
15:00-15:15 Coffee/Tea/Biscuits
15:15-15:45 Greg Burwell, Jon Evans, Fabrication and Characterization of Mn-doped GaN at CNH
16:00-17:00 Discussion
