Spin selectivity in a disordered optical medium paves the way for topological photonics
Daisy Shearer is a student contributor to Physics World. She is currently pursuing a PhD in experimental physics at the University of Surrey's Advanced Technology Institute. Her research focuses on semiconductor spintronics for spin injection into quantum technologies. She is particularly interested in using strongly spin-orbit coupled III-V semiconductors to produce spin-polarized currents for initializing electron spin qubits and works primarily with indium antimonide heterostructures. When she isn't in the lab, she enjoys reading, baking, knitting and scuba diving.
Electron spin current is generated without the need for large external magnetic fields
