28 August 2014 Direct observation of a highly spin-polarized organic spinterface at room temperature
Author Affiliations +
Toward the design of large-scale electronic circuits that are entirely spintronics-driven, organic semiconductors have been identified as a promising medium to transport information using the electron spin. This requires a ferromagnetic metal-organic interface that is highly spin-polarized at and beyond room temperature, but this key building block is still lacking. We show how the interface between Co and phthalocyanine molecules constitutes a promising candidate. In fact, spin-polarized direct and inverse photoemission experiments reveal a high degree of spin polarization at room temperature at this interface.
