Summary on Grant Application Form
In magnetoelectronics the spin of the charge carriers is exploit with spin polarised injection. Significantly, spin-exploited. In molecular electronics the circuits possess injection will be across nanoscale interfaces. Thereforeprecision at the atomic level. We aim to integrate these two device performance could far exceed the performance offields by fabricating heterostructure devices that will planar tunnel junctions in which the interfaces areintegrate manganites with single wall carbon nanotubes. imperfect and span several microns. We hope to achieve:We will work with both isolated nanotubes, and dense (1) large magnetoresistive effects, (2) exotic effects inaligned forests. The ferromagnetic manganites are a coherently coupled Luttinger liquid (nanotube) arrays, (3)particularly effective source of spin-polarised electrons a turnstile device that emits spin polarised electrons one at(polarisation? 100%). Carbon nanotubes display exotic a time for quantum computing, (4) spectroscopic evidenceproperties (Kondo physics, Luttinger liquid behaviour and for Luttinger liquid behaviour and (5) a theoreticalsuperconducting fluctuations) that we will explore and analysis of the above.
