Title: Enhanced room-temperature spin Seebeck effect in a YIG/C 60/Pt layered heterostructure

Abstract

We report on large enhancement of the longitudinal spin Seebeck effect (LSSE) in the Y 3Fe 5O 12 (YIG)/Pt system at room temperature due to the addition of a thin layer of organic semiconductor (C 60) in between the YIG and the Pt. LSSE measurements show that the LSSE voltage increases significantly, from the initial value of 150 nV for the YIG/Pt structure to 240 nV for the YIG/C 60(5nm)/Pt structure. Radio-frequency transverse susceptibility experiments reveal a significant decrease in the surface perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) of the YIG film when C 60 is deposited on it. These results suggest that the LSSE enhancement may be attributed to increased spin mixing conductance, the decreased PMA, and the large spin diffusion length of C 60.
