26 September 2013 Thermokinetic considerations about spin-dependent voltage generated by heat currents

Thermokinetic considerations are appled to the case of a generic spintronic device in which a magneto-voltaic response is measured, in the absence of electric current, on an electrode placed perpendicular to a ferromagnetic layer (see Fig. 1). The magnetovoltaic signal is a response to a power excitation, that is related to the ferromagnetic degrees of freedom. This excitation can be performed by ferromagnetic resonance (electromagnetic excitations), by a temperature gradient, by magnetomechanical coupling or by magneto optic coupling (see these proceedings). The description of this generic device allows the so-called spin-Seebeck effects and spin-pumping effects17-16 to be addressed.
