Title:
Spin-Hall conductivity and electric polarization in metallic thin films
Authors:
Wang, Xuhui; Xiao, Jiang; Manchon, Aurelien ( 0000-0002-4768-293X ) ; Maekawa, Sadamichi
Abstract:
We predict theoretically that when a normal metallic thin film (without bulk spin-orbit coupling, such as Cu or Al) is sandwiched by two insulators, two prominent effects arise due to the interfacial spin-orbit coupling: a giant spin-Hall conductivity due to the surface scattering and a transverse electric polarization due to the spin-dependent phase shift in the spinor wave functions.
