Attraction of the leading scientists to Russian institutions of higher learning, research organizations of the governmental academies of sciences, and governmental research centers of the Russian Federation

Laboratory for the Study of Spinoptronics 

About the laboratory

This laboratory was established as part of a scientific research project supported with a monetary grant awarded by the Government of the Russian Federation under a grant competition designed to provide governmental support to scientific research projects implemented under the supervision of the world's leading scientists at Russian institutions of higher learning (Resolution of the RF Government No.220 of April 9, 2010).

Grant Agreement No.:
14.Z50.31.0021

Name of the institution of higher learning:
The Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute of Russian Academy of Science

Fields of scientific research:
Physics

Project goal:
Designing new concepts of spin-based semiconductor devices that may serve as the foundation for the development of fundamentally new directions in informatics, technical and applied sciences (quantum cryptography, spin memory, telecommunications based on hybrid semiconductor/ferromagnetic systems), and medicine (spin-based biomarkers).

Project objectives:
To study spin phenomena in the most advanced semiconductor systems and to use the newly acquired knowledge in the development of spin electronics, optoelectronics, quantum informatics, etc.

Anticipated results:
The project seeks to create hybrid semiconductor/ferromagnetic structures whose new functional capacities are achieved by combining various charge- and spin-related properties.
In addition, the project seeks to design new experimental approaches combining optical spectroscopy and magnetic resonance methods to study atomic and spin structures of point defects.
