I am a "Universitair Hoofddocent" (~ Assoc. Prof.) at the
Institute for Theoretical
Physics
at
Utrecht
University. My
current research is focused mostly on
spintronics: the
research discipline concerned with exploiting the spin degree
of freedom
of the electron in
applications.
Spintronics
combines efforts of materials
nanoscience,
nanoelectronics,
and
condensedmatter
physics. My
expertise
is in
theoretical
condensedmatter
physics.

 Lecture notes on spintronics
[Continuouslyupdated lecture notes and exercises that grew out of the course "spintronics" taught at Utrecht university in Spring 2007.
Topics discussed are: path integrals for spins, ferromagnetism, spin valves, spin transfer torques, current and fielddriven domain wall motion, and the spin Hall effect. There is also a short appendix on transport and disordered electrons. Feel free to use these notes
