Pseudospin-driven spin relaxation mechanism in graphene

27 Apr 2018 Van Tuan Dinh Ortmann Frank Soriano David Valenzuela Sergio O. Roche Stephan

The possibility of transporting spin information over long distances in graphene, owing to its small intrinsic spin-orbit coupling (SOC) and the absence of hyperfine interaction, has led to intense research into spintronic applications. However, measured spin relaxation times are orders of magnitude smaller than initially predicted, while the main physical process for spin dephasing and its charge-density and disorder dependences remain unconvincingly described by conventional mechanisms...
