Spin Orbit Interaction Induced Spin-Separation In Platinum Nanostructure
Hirsch (1999) proposed a mechanism and geometry for the observation of the spin-Hall effect. In this work, we present a novel realization of the Hirsch geometry in a platinum (Pt) nanostructure, which is an increasingly important material for spintronics applications. Measurements were made in a non-local geometry to avoid spurious effects. The measurements show the large spin Hall conductivity of Pt. The results are compared with gold (Au) and aluminum (Al). Possible theoretical explanations of our observations are briefly mentioned.
