This lecture has now been cancelled, but may be re-scheduled at a later date.

Abstract:

Tailoring transport properties in nanostructures is a key element for future applications. This is not limited to the design of new materials but includes also the search of new effects. In all cases, a decent theoretical understanding of the physical phenomena is important. I will start with a brief discussion of different theoretical approaches to calculate the transport properties.

Afterwards I focus on our non-equilibrium Green’s function method (NEGF) implemented in our KKR code. In particular, I will discuss different spin-orbit related transport phenomena as detection of skyrmions via magnetic tunnel junctions, tunneling anisotropy magneto resistance, and spin-Hall effect. Thereby, I will elaborate on the importance of material choice. Further, I will talk about our implementation of electron-phonon coupling within the NEGF method.
