Spin caloritronics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter focuses on spin caloritronics, the field combining thermoelectrics with spintronics and nanomagnetism. Spin caloritronics is concerned with new physics related to spin, charge, and entropy/energy transport in materials and nanoscale structures and devices. Heat and spin effects are also coupled by the dissipation and noise associated with magnetization dynamics. Spin caloritronics lead to low power nan-scale devices and provide new strategies for waste heat recovery.
