Serol Turkyilmaz from Ozkan’s Labs Wins the Best Poster Award at the StarNET CSPIN Annual Review Meeting

September 24, 2015

Serol Turkyilmaz, a 4th year Ph.D. student of Professors Mihri Ozkan and Cengiz S.Ozkan in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering won the Best Poster Award at the Annual Review of the SRC StarNET Center for Spintronic Materials, Interconnects and Novel Architectures (C-SPIN) at the University of Minnesota, last week.  His poster presentation under the “Spintronic Devices and Interconnects” category entitled “Toward Non-local Spin Transfer Torque in Graphene” received the first place award among 65 poster presentations with the participation of 125 students from 18 different universities. Jury members in the award evaluation committee are high level representatives from Intel, IBM, Micron, Texas Instruments and DARPA. Preliminary work presented by Serol Turkyilmaz at the Annual Review showed promising results for manipulating spins in Graphene, a promising 2D spin channel material, which is a crucial step toward the realization of future spin-based devices. This work was enabled via a fruitful collaboration between the research groups of Ozkan (UCR), R. Kawakami (Ohio State University), S. Koester (University of Minnesota) and P. Crowell (University of Minnesota).
