We address the problem of spin-resolved scattering through spin-orbit nanostructures in graphene, i.e., regions of inhomogeneous spin-orbit coupling on the nanometer scale. We discuss the phenomenon of spin-double refraction and its consequences on the spin polarization. Specifically, we study the transmission properties of a single and a double interface between a normal region and a region with finite spin-orbit coupling, and analyze the polarization properties of these systems. Moreover, for the case of a single interface, we determine the spectrum of edge states localized at the boundary between the two regions and study their properties.
  • The results below are discovered through our pilot algorithms. Let us know how we are doing!
