Thermal gradients shown to enhance spin transport in graphene

Scientists of the ICN2 Physics and Engineering of Nanodevices Group, led by ICREA Prof. Sergio O. Valenzuela, have contributed to the literature on spin caloritronics with a focus on the effect of thermal gradients on spins in graphene. The paper titled "Thermoelectric spin voltage in graphene" was published this week in Nature Nanotechnology, with lead author Juan F. Sierra.
