Abstract

The conversion of charge current into spin current by the Rashba-Edelstein effect enables the reciprocal control of electron charge and magnetization in magnetoelectric and magneto-optical devices. The fundamentals of this effect are described in 3D lead-halide perovskites: due to spin-momentum locking, a strong charge-spin conversion, widely tunable by the injected charge density, is envisaged. The analysis highlights the close relationship between charge-spin conversion and the topological transition occurring from the low-density, torus-shaped Fermi surface (genus 1) to the high-density, simply connected Fermi surfaces (genus 0). At room temperature, spin-polarizations as large as approximate to 10% are obtained for input charge currents in the approximate to 102 to 106 Acm(-2) range; at low temperature, almost full spin-polarization can be achieved, owed to the large, impurity scattering-limited mobilities. The results qualify lead-halide perovskites as suitable materials for spin-orbitronic applications.
