Spintronics on chiral objects
Chirality, handedness, is one of the most fundamental intriguing asymmetries in nature. By definition, chiral objects cannot be superimposed onto each other after mirror reflection operation. Numerous examples of chiral structures can be found in nature, for example, chiral molecules and chiral magnetic nanostructures. Moving electrons are associated with handedness by their own spins due to spin-orbit interaction thus exhibiting various emergent phenomena as they interact with chiral materials, which otherwise would not be observed in achiral systems. This new paradigm allows the potential development of new forms of devices or methods by utilizing reciprocal interaction of chiral objects with moving electron spins. This review updates the remarkable progresses in Spintronics on Chiral Objects that have been made over the past few years providing an outlook for new opportunities and potential applications with new insights.
