Pure spin current in a robust pigment-red film

We report the spin current properties in a pigment-red (perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic dianhydride: PTCDA) film prepared by thermal evaporation. In a palladium(Pd)/PTCDA/Ni80Fe20 tri-layer sample, a pure spin-current is generated in the PTCDA layer by the spin-pumping of the Ni80Fe20... The spin current is absorbed into the Pd layer, converted into a charge current with the inverse spin-Hall effect in Pd, and detected as an electromotive force. This is clear evidence for the pure spin current in a PTCDA film, and it is confirmed that a PTCDA film is useful not only as a robust protection layer material but also as a spintronic material. read more
