2019 IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer (one of four) Location:   Western Digital, 1710 Automation Pkwy (Directions and Map) San Jose, CA 95131 United States Hyunsoo Yang National University of Singapore Spintronic devices utilize an electric current to alter the state of a magnetic material and thus find great application in magnetic memory. Over the last decade, spintronic research has focused largely on techniques based on spin-orbit coupling, such as spin-orbit torques (SOTs), to alter the magnetic state. The phenomenon of spin-orbit coupling in magnetic…
