Abstract

Spin Hall effects (SHEs) interconvert spin- and charge currents due to spin-orbit interaction, which enables convenient electrical generation and detection of diffusive spin currents and even collective spin excitations in magnetic solids. Here, we review recent experimental efforts exploring efficient spin Hall detector materials as well as new approaches to drive collective magnetization dynamics and to manipulate spin textures by SHEs. These studies are also expected to impact practical spintronics applications beyond their significance in fundamental research.
