Skew Scattering Mechanism by an Ab Initio Approach: Extrinsic Spin Hall Effect in Noble Metals

Abstract:

Article Preview

We present a first-principles study of the extrinsic spin Hall effect due to skew scattering at substitutional defects in noble metals (Cu, Ag, and Au). The dependence of the spin Hall angle on the type of impurity atoms in the host materials is discussed. We perform a detailed analysis based on the consideration of the total angular momentum dependence on scattering phase shifts of the impurity and host atoms.
