In a paper, published by Applied Physics Letters, Yaroslaw Bazaliy of the University of South Carolina and Revaz Ramazashvili of the LPT have studied local injection of pure spin current into an electrically disconnected ferromagnetic-normal sandwich. Curiously enough, it turns out that local spin injection inevitably induces electric current vortices, that are centered at the normal-ferromagnetic interface. This finding invites us to revisit various aspects of spin injection in spintronic devices.

Maxime Dupont, PhD student in LPT, together with Sylvain Capponi and Nicolas Laflorencie, studied dynamical correlations at finite temperature in quantum spin chains using matrix product state techniques, thus allowing to extract the NMR relaxation rate. This work addresses the delicate question of the low-temperature dimensional crossover in realistic materials, such as coupled S=1 chains material DTN.

We developed a microscopic theory of a quantum impurity propagating in a one-dimensional Bose liquid. As a result of scattering off thermally excited quasiparticles, the impurity experiences the friction. We found that, at low temperatures, the resulting force scales either as the fourth or the eighth power of temperature, depending on the system parameters. For temperatures higher than the chemical potential of the Bose liquid, the friction force is a linear function of temperature.

This workshop intends to gather theoretical physicists specialized in statistical physics and soft matter, and working on different subjects related to molecular and cell biology, but using very similar paradigms and tools. They belong to coarse-grained models, effective mesoscopic models, and/or analytical approaches.
