Spin Hall Effect

  • Matthias AlthammerEmail author
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 192)


The spin Hall effect is of current interest from a fundamental and a device application point of view. Most importantly, the spin Hall effect allows to transfer an electrical charge current into a pure spin current, i.e. a current carrying only (spin) angular momentum without an accompanying charge current. This property enables us to gain access to novel spin current related effects by using electrical generation and/or detection schemes. Within this chapter, we will give an overview of the multitude of phenomena associated with it, focussing on means to quantify the spin Hall effect.
