About SpinTech VIII

SpinTech VIII will highlight fundamental physical phenomena related to spin-dependent effects in condensed matters and advances in the development of new spintronic materials, structures and devices, including quantum information science and concepts. The school will take place during the first half of the week to orient newcomers and students to this emerging field and will be followed by a conference aiming at stimulating the progress in new materials, measurement and theory of spintronics systems.


The topics include experimental and theoretical investigations of

  • Spin-dependent transport phenomena
  • Spin-dependent optical phenomena
  • Spin-dependent thermal phenomena
  • Spin current generation, manipulation, and detection
  • Spin coherence and manipulation
  • Topological insulators and graphene
  • Spintronic materials including metals, semiconductors and insulators (both organic and inorganic materials)
  • Quantum information processing (including atoms in vacuum, etc.)
  • Spintronic devices and applications
  • Spin related phenomena

Previous SpinTech Conferences

The SpinTech series was launched in Hawaii (2001) with the objective of highlighting the latest developments in using spin-dependent phenomena for nanoelectronics and quantum technologies. Since its inception, it has become a biennial event attracting leading researchers from physics, chemistry, materials science, and device engineering.
