Strong evidence for d-electron spin transport at room temperature at a LaAlO<sub>3</sub>/SrTiO<sub>3</sub> interface Shinjo, Teruya eng Klingler, Stefan Huebl, Hans Klingler, Stefan Susaki, Tomofumi Shikoh, Eiji Ohshima, Ryo Weiler, Mathias Gönnenwein, Sebastian T. B. 2021-01-29T10:40:53Z Shinjo, Teruya Matsuzaki, Kosuke Shikoh, Eiji Huebl, Hans 2021-01-29T10:40:53Z terms-of-use A d-orbital electron has an anisotropic electron orbital and is a source of magnetism. The realization of a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) embedded at a LaAlO<sub>3</sub>/SrTiO<sub>3</sub> interface surprised researchers in materials and physical sciences because the 2DEG consists of 3d-electrons of Ti with extraordinarily large carrier mobility, even in the insulating oxide heterostructure. To date, a wide variety of physical phenomena, such as ferromagnetism and the quantum Hall effect, have been discovered in this 2DEG system, demonstrating the ability of d-electron 2DEG systems to provide a material platform for the study of interesting physics. However, because of both ferromagnetism and the Rashba field, long-range spin transport and the exploitation of spintronics functions have been believed difficult to implement in d-electron 2DEG systems. Here, we report the experimental demonstration of room-temperature spin transport in a d-electron-based 2DEG at a LaAlO<sub>3</sub>/SrTiO<sub>3</sub> interface, where the spin relaxation length is about 300 nm. Our finding, which counters the conventional understandings of d-electron 2DEGs, highlights the spin-functionality of conductive oxide systems and opens the field of d-electron spintronics.
