First measurement of thermoelectric properties of single magnetic domain wall

15 octubre 2015

Magnetic nanostructures — or rather: the interaction between charge, spin and current flow as a function of a temperature gradient in such structures — this is what the fast growing research area named «spin caloritronics» deals with. And this area of research has already come up with a number of newly discovered interesting effects and promising applications. Scientists have, for the first time, succeeded in measuring the thermoelectric properties of a single magnetic domain wall.
