At the nanoscale, the relevant length-scale for modern spintronics, spin current generation is rather limited due to unwanted contributions from poorly spin-polarized frontier states in ferromagnetic electrodes, or too short length-scales for efficient spin splitting by spin-orbit interaction and magnetic fields. Here, we show that spin-polarized currents can be generated in silver-vanadocene-silver single molecule junctions without magnetic components or magnetic fields. In some cases, the measured spin currents approach the limit of ideal ballistic spin transport. Comparison between conductance and shot-noise measurements to detailed calculations reveals a mechanism based on spin-dependent quantum interference that yields very efficient spin filtering. Our findings pave the way for nanoscale spintronics based on quantum interference, with the advantages of low sensitivity to decoherence effects and the freedom to use non-magnetic materials.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Smogunov, Alexander</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Sarkar, Soumyajit</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Li, Dongzhe</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kronik, Leeor</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Chakrabarti, Sudipto</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Vilan, Ayelet</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-12-18T11:38:51Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Kronik, Leeor</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Smogunov, Alexander</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
