The Graphene Flagship announced a work package that explores the potential of graphene spintronics for future devices and applications. It is searching for a new partner company to support device development and commercialisation of graphene spintronics, by applying it in specific device architectures dedicated to commercially viable applications and determining the required figures of merits. This can include devices which require optimised (long distance) spin transport, spin-based sensors, and new integrated two-dimensional spin valve architectures.
The Graphene Flagship expects that at the start of the Horizon 2020 phase (April 2016), spin injection and spin transport in graphene and related materials will have been characterised and the resulting functional properties will have been understood and modelled.
The indicative budget for the period 1 April 2016 – 31 March 2018 is €350,000.
