What is it about?

Thin layers of ferromagnetic/non-magnetic bimetallic heterostructures have become the focal point of spintronics, primarily due to their capacity to convert spin to charge current, leveraging the spin- and inverse spin Hall effects. By combining the experimental and computational findings, we propose optimized growth conditions for an "ideal" Fe/Pt interface, which could serve as a useful tool to control the efficiency of spin-to-charge conversion.

Why is it important?

This approach has the potential to manipulate the structural and chemical characteristics of FM/NM interfaces and can serve as a valuable tool for further modeling the interfacial transparency, accurately determining the efficiency of spin-to-charge conversion and estimating spin transport parameters across interfaces.


Consequently, the particular growth strategy is capable of controlling the interface properties of Fe/Pt system and thus, could be utilized for targeted modification of the magnetization dynamics for SCC applications.
