As the renaissance of Michael Faraday’s prophetic idea that magnetism, electricity, and light are macroscopically interconnected, advances in materials science, nanotechnology, and magnetism research have enabled investigation of the interplay of spins, charges, and photons at the microscopic level. It forms an exciting new research field known as Dynamic Spintronics. In this talk, I will highlight some of the highly interested physics concepts in this new frontier of condensed matter physics research, which involves spin current, spin injection, spin Hall effect, inverse spin Hall effect, spin rectification, spin pumping, and spin torque. Thereby, I will review our recent work performed at the University of Manitoba.
