Summary of "Electric field control of Rashba spin splitting in 2D NIIIXVI (N=Ga, In; X=S, Se, Te) monolayer."

Spin splitting of the nonmagnetic two dimensional (2D) layered NX(N=Ga, In; X= S, Se, Te) monolayer is investigated based on the density functional theory. Due to the mirror symmetry, there is no Rashba spin splitting (RSS) in the freestanding NX plane. It is found that applying the external electric field perpendicular to the NX plane can result in sizable RSS around the Γ point due to the mirror symmetry breaking. The induced RSS is mainly influenced by the anions X and gradually strengthens with the increase of external electric field. The considerable RSS is observed in NTe systems. Moreover, the influence of in-plane biaxial strain on RSS is explored, and the tensile strain can enhance the RSS, especially for those bands around the Fermi level. Our theoretical investigation provides a deep insight in spin splitting behaviors in NX monolayers and agrees well with the experimental report.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Devices for accelerating charged particles in a spiral path by a constant-frequency alternating electric field. This electric field is synchronized with the movement of the particles in a constant magnetic field.

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive FREE RADICALS in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (Free Rad Res Comm 1990;9(3-6):163)

Electrophoresis in which the direction of the electric field is changed periodically. This technique is similar to other electrophoretic methods normally used to separate double-stranded DNA molecules ranging in size up to tens of thousands of base-pairs. However, by alternating the electric field direction one is able to separate DNA molecules up to several million base-pairs in length.

Molecules which contain an atom or a group of atoms exhibiting an unpaired electron spin that can be detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and can be bonded to another molecule. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

Devices that control the supply of electric current for running electrical equipment.
