Title: Investigation of charge to spin current conversion with the BiSb topological insulator
Summary: The project will focus on BiSb material. A critical part will be the growth of a magnetic material on it while preserving the 2DSS. Spacer layer with long spin relaxation time or thin tunneling barrier can be explored. The study of the role of inserted magnetic impurities could also be inquired fabricating hetero-structures involving magnetic topological insulator. Finally, the electronic properties characterized by ARPES will be correlated to the magneto-transport properties and magnetic reversal studies using spin current.
