Novel spin relaxation in semiconductors

The theoretical description of spin relaxation is the key to spintronics, a potential new paradigm aiming to substitute conventional electronics. The study, published by the BME-MTA PROSPIN research group in Scientific Reports, identifies a new regime of spin relaxation, characterized by non-exponential behavior. The group also introduces an efficient numerical method, allowing to accurately predict spin-relaxation times even for materials possessing complicated spin-orbit interaction.
