Abstract (English)

Both the field of spintronics - utilizing the spin degree of freedom of charge carriers - as well as the field of graphene - a single layer of graphite - offer promising perspectives for a future electronics. Theoretical studies of transport properties in such systems may help identifying new physical effects and applications. Such theoretical explorations however often encounter complex ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Sowohl das Gebiet der Spintronik, welches den Spin-Freiheitsgrad der Ladungsträger ausnutzt, als auch Graphen, eine einatomige Schicht von Kohlenstoffatomen, eröffnen interessante Perspektiven für eine zukünftige Elektronik. Theoretische Studien von Transporteigenschaften solcher Systeme können dabei helfen, neue physikalische Effekte und Anwendungen zu finden. Allerdings stoßen derartige ...
