Quality training of young researchers in the emerging field of Spin Orbitronics.

SPEAR

SPEAR will create a European network of experts providing challenging, state-of-the-art training for young researchers in the field of fundamental and applied Spin Orbitronics.

Spin Orbitronics deals with the rich physical phenomena observed in condensed matter systems arising from spin-orbit coupling (SOC), a relativistic effect that couples the electronic spin and momentum degrees of freedom, with both a fundamental interest and technological perspectives: Spin Orbitronics has shown great potential for the development of novel MRAM (magnetic random-access memory) and is considered among the best strategies to complement and go beyond current CMOS technology.

Although the academic spintronic community is strong, the number of European companies taking advantage of spintronic (the umbrella under which Spin Orbitronics can be included) technologies is still limited in comparison to those in the U.S. or Asia.

In SPEAR, excellent research centers have joined up with private companies to set new ground-breaking scientific and technological objectives and for a network that will provide fifteen early-stage researchers with quality training in the emerging field of Spin Orbitronics.
