Thin film oxides

Introduction

If metallic materials were largely used in the early beginning of spin electronics, it is due to oxide materials that recent progresses have been achieved. These oxides are promising for obtaining new functionalities of future sip electronics based devices.
The crystalline structure of oxides is often complex, and consequently their synthesis difficult. This complexity, however, allow the existence of interactions between spin, charge, orbital moment and crystalline lattice, which allow a large modularity of their properties. This leads to a wide research field on oxide materials both on their synthesis, for materials chemists, and applications, for physicists. Generally, research in this field area starts with the study of known compounds, their preparation in bulk and thin film single crystal form (by pulsed laser deposition or sputtering), the study of the exact origin of their properties, and the theoretical study of these properties. Finally, different ways are suggested to improve these properties. It is therefore by a back and forth between experiment and theory that new materials can be designed for the needs of future applications.
The challenges in the field of spin electronics can be classified in three main categories:
1. creation of spin polarized current
2. spin polarization conservation across the tunnel barrier
3. polarization control
