We predict the very large spin Hall efect in type-II superconductors whose mechanism is drastically diferent from the previously known ones. We fnd that in the fux-fow regime the spin is transported by the spin-polarized Abrikosov vortices moving under the action of the Lorenz force in the direction perpendicular to the applied electric current. Due to the large vortex velocities the spin Hall angle can be of the order of unity in realistic systems based on the high-feld superconductors, superconductor/ ferromagnet hybrid structures or the recently developed superconductor/ferromagnetic insulator proximity structures. We propose the realization of high-frequency pure spin current generator based on the periodic structure of moving vortex lattices. We fnd the patterns of charge imbalance and spin accumulation generated by moving vortices, which can be used for the electrical detection of individual vortex motion. The new mechanism of inverse fux-fow spin Hall efect is found based on the driving force acting on the vortices in the presence of injected spin current which results in the generation of transverse voltage. ...

Sebastian; Silaev, Mikhail; Virtanen, Pauli; Heikkilä, Tero (American Physical Society, 2018)This Colloquium discusses the recent progress in understanding the properties of spin-split superconductors under nonequilibrium conditions. Recent experiments and theories demonstrate a rich variety of transport phenomena ...
Coexistence of superconductivity and spin-splitting fields in superconductor/ferromagnetic insulator bilayers of arbitrary thickness Hijano, Alberto; Ilić, Stefan; Rouco, Mikel; González-Orellana, Carmen; Ilyn, Maxim; Rogero, Celia; Virtanen, P.; Heikkilä, T. T.; Khorshidian, S.; Spies, M.; Ligato, N.; Giazotto, F.; Strambini, E.; Bergeret, F. Sebastián (American Physical Society (APS), 2021)Ferromagnetic insulators (FI) can induce a strong exchange field in an adjacent superconductor (S) via the magnetic proximity effect. This manifests as spin splitting of the BCS density of states of the superconductor, an ...
Charge transport through spin-polarized tunnel junction between two spin-split superconductors Rouco, Mikel; Chakraborty, Subrata; Aikebaier, Faluke; Golovach, Vitaly N.; Strambini, Elia; Moodera, Jagadeesh S.; Giazotto, Francesco; Heikkilä, Tero T.; Bergeret, F. Sebastian (American Physical Society, 2019)We investigate transport properties of junctions between two spin-split superconductors linked by a spin-polarized tunneling barrier. The spin-splitting fields in the superconductors (S) are induced by adjacent ferromagnetic ...
Coupling the Higgs mode and ferromagnetic resonance in spin-split superconductors with Rashba spin-orbit coupling Lu, Yao; Ojajärvi, Risto; Virtanen, P.; Silaev, M. A.; Heikkilä, Tero T. (American Physical Society (APS), 2022)We show that the Higgs mode of superconductors can couple with spin dynamics in the presence of a static spin-splitting field and Rashba spin-orbit coupling. The Higgs-spin coupling dramatically modifies the spin susceptibility ...
Current Rectification in Junctions with Spin-Split Superconductors Ilić, Stefan; Virtanen, Pauli; Heikkilä, Tero T.; Bergeret, F. Sebastián (American Physical Society (APS), 2022)Spin-split superconductors exhibit an electron-hole asymmetric spin-resolved density of states, but the symmetry is restored upon averaging over spin. On the other hand, asymmetry appears again in tunneling junctions of ...
